    Finally got the push bar to adhere to the bumper using super glue this time. Then had to use a liquid chrome pen to fill in where the chrome plating came off. Then added Fireball Modelworks off-road lights to push bar for personal preference, this isn't complete yet, gonna add two more lights to the top of the bush bar then the KC Hilites decals to the light covers.

    How do you repaint chrome bumpers, to look chrome again?
    Trying to attach a cactus smasher push bar on my Revell early Bronco I've run into some problems. I first tried regular model glue, that failed, then tried epoxy but must have got the mixture wrong cause it failed, now I'm trying regular super glue. So in all of this my chrome bumper has now missing chrome around where it's been glued twice before and the super glue is turning the area around the joint white. SO, how do I fix it so it at least looks somewhat decent?

    Worked on the Bronco a little today.
    1. Finished the front windshield
    2. Finished the dash, did make a mistake painting it. Where the steering column enters the dash is supposed to be semi gloss black but the directions don't point this out, it wasn't till I finished the dash did I realize it.
    3. Adding another personal touch to the front bumper by adding a "cactus smasher" push bar from Fireball Modelworks.

    I'm currently researching whats the best adhesive to use for windows.

    More test fitting, didn't like the plastic spare tire that came with the kit so I ordered another wheel & tire and mounted that on the movable spare tire carrier, hood painted final color.

    What else is there to do on a rainy day but do some work on the Bronco. So here's where I am now, custom fabricated roll bar is finished and looks pretty good for my first time fabricating anything for a model. It's not 100 percent perfect but close enough to the look I wanted.

    Well, I'm still deciding on how to do the door windows, several options come to mind. 1st is the rolled up look which isn't my favorite, 2nd is leaving them out completely but then that isn't a true Bronco look (unless the doors are completely removed), 3rd and most likely is to cut out the window and just leave the window frame which is the closest to the original look of the Bronco with the top off. The 3rd option is going to be tough since I have no clue how to do it without breaking something. As for installation I'm gonna tape the windows to the top then glue the windshield frame to the side windows before installing the windshield frame to the body.

    Finished the interior, went with more grayish color. I also didn't like the factory roll bar that came with it so I decided to fabricate one more to my liking (shown here being test fitted). That was a chore and a half plus going through a package of plastic rod just to get the roll bar somewhat close to what I envisioned.

    Complete rolling chassis. All suspension, steering, powertrain, drivetrain, wheels & tires installed. I deviated a little from the painting directions to better suit my taste.

    Here's the mostly complete roller chassis, minus the wheels & tires, steering and some of the front suspension.

    Hello all, I'm new to this forum but not model building. I've been building models on and off since I can remember but just for fun and not really seriously, no detailing and the model never stayed around long. This past Fathers Day I was given Revell's new Bronco model as a gift from the kids, so I figured I'd go slow and do it correctly. This is the first model I've tried to build in more then fifteen years. To say I'm a novice at detailing a model is an understatement, I'm horrible at it but I'll try my best.
