Hi all
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?

Tim Heimer 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.

Munkyslut Tim that's brilliant! Yes I think it'll work, nice one!

Nigel Chapman Hi I have just bought a transit kit. How do you intend to build it ?
6. June at 20:16:06
Munkyslut 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.....
6. June at 21:18:54
Nigel Chapman 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.
7. June at 09:02:18
Munkyslut 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!
7. June at 10:12:36
Munkyslut 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......
7. June at 10:15:18
Nigel Chapman 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.

Łukasz Gliński There used to be an event for that: The Neglected Kit Resurrection Groupbuild (1. January until 31. December, UK)
(event used as a kind of workaround I assume). It died some time ago, though it is one of my favs.
20. May at 12:49:38
Munkyslut Yes that's exactly the kind of thing I'd hoped for, Shane it's gone! Thanks for trying though
20. May at 20:30:35
Augie Well its in history, but no reason It could not be resurrected.. thats the great thing with this site.
