Is there an easy method to make windscreens, side glass etc?
I have a 1/16 Camaro Z/28 that I just bagged off eBay & the glass sprue/bag was missing.
I was going to use some tinted cellophane sheet & simply glue in to the inside of the window aperture.
There is no side glass on this one & I'm going to leave the T-Tops of to show the interior, so just front & rear screens.
They are pretty basic curved forms, no compound curves.
Any other suggestions?

A thought on this, The Camaro and Firebird are both GM F body's. MPC has the 79 bird out in 1/16. Theoretically it should work. plus it has the T-tops. This kit does not have side windows, but I think your kit didn't either. Just a thought.

Hi I have just bought a transit kit. How do you intend to build it ?

Hiya Nigel, I was planning to do a mild late 70's custom, smooth the shell a little, no bumpers, big n little mag wheels, custom interior & bucket seats, sidepipes, spoilers etc. Not sure on a colour tho.....

Cool I was considering something similar myself but more 80'S. So far I have a pair of resin Recaro's and a resin Rover V8 and maybe a day van type interior.

Rover block would be great, they have a fixed bonnet so any engine mods would only be visible from the underside.
A day van interior sounds good, plenty of shag & cocktail cabinets!

Are you thinking more 80's with paint? Like more modern graphics rather than old skool?
I was going for flake & pearls but still not sure on colours......

Opening the bonnet would look different as well as show off the engine.
A 70's paint job would look fine - How about the Dirty Donny decals from the Chevy van kit ?
For my van I'm thinking a plain colour with tiger stripes (remember them ? every Ford had them) or going pastel shades and daft graphics (80's / 90's pro street).
There is a resto mod Transit in all the magazines at the moment - Stock body with AMG V6 running gear, lowered all round on slot mags.

I know this may be a silly question but is there a forum thread on major restoration of old previously assembled models?
I’m just rebuilding a vintage 1960’s issue 1/8th Revell Corvette & would love some little tips & secrets on how to make 50 year old stuff look a little bit presentable for display.

Yes that's exactly the kind of thing I'd hoped for, Shane it's gone! Thanks for trying though

Saw a couple of lovely diecast versions of this for about £175 apiece in the junk shop in Manchester.
