Scale I Build

Found 5 results

  1. I bought an MPC 1968 Promo car with a few missing parts and an area of body gone. I can fix it with parts of a currently-available model kit. Is there a glue that will adhere to both materials: promo & kit styrene? I did search for previous threads on the subject but what i found only dealt with acetate promos.
  2. Ok, this is the third Round2 kit I have had issue with and this one is by far the worst problem kit so far. Paint or primer absolutely WILL NOT STICK to this kit. I washed it as always before starting, paint looks like oil or water under it when applied. OK I stripped in brake fluid, same problem, stripped in purple pond...same problem. Stripped in brake fluid, washed, easy off, washed, Tamiya primer mostly covers but starts to bubble, ok I wet sand bubbles, shot with Krylon (Yeah getting po'ed and cheap), first coat looks ok, second coat of same paint crazes like..well crazy. I am trying to build the Round2 '53 Ford Truck. ( I'm done with it and it is going into trash) Does any one else have any experience with this problem? I am also building a Revel 68 Mustang bought at same time, zero problem with paint. I just completed the Round2 Cougar Eliminator last week, again no problems. Plastic looked different on the two Round2 kits as well. Thanks if anyone has any ideas.
  3. Hi. Any tip for something to use for mounting the lenses for headlights that does not miscolor them or turn them white? Is there any spesific sort of glue/cement intended for glass and clear parts? It`s like 50/50 for me as if i screw it up or it look good. And most types of glue i have experiencd so far tend to float all over the place when it touch the plastic,no matter how small amount i try to add.
  4. What type of glue would you recomend for using for assemble resin parts? Would be nice with product name and maby a little picture of the product. It`s okay to know since i most likely would purchase it from Ebay since many of products you use arent avaliable in my country,or have a diffrent name. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi. How do you guys handle parts that is really stuck? Is there any bath/chemicals to resolve glue and at the same time do not damage the plastic? Really struggling with this old Cadillac,so far it got me 5 stiches in my finger and i`m still just as troubled as when i started The only parts that are left are the headlights,not the lense but the housing and i`m out of ideas to get them off. Any tips and tricks would be greatly appriciated.
