I have this one on the bench as a Texas DPS car, But only one technical error if I may, all CHP cars up to 1990 were required to have a red lens on the driver side spot light. But this looks fantastic !

Thanks all for the nice words. Yeah that rear axle was way too long and I only did a test fit with the chassis and not the body. Thanks Bob I will have to correct that spot light. Nigel that's my first video so I have lots to improve on. Thanks all

Here are my proper pictures for this build. Even though it was an old kit the fit and finish was pretty good. Fun to build. Only downside are the two-piece tires.

I've tried to buy the The Revell van but prices are way too high. The AMT vans are good And come in short and long wheel based versions but have no lift off roof.

I looked on eBay Nigel, those bloody Revell Chevy vans are regularly fetching a 100 quid!

No idea why but the Revell vans tend to hold their price. The first vans I bought 6 plus years ago were around £20. They are Now anything between £30 - 150

Hi All,
I've been building models since I was a kid and am getting back into it. How many of you scrape paint off parts before gluing? For painted parts I've been using the Bob Smith super glues but even those don't stick well to paints. There are parts where scraping is almost impossible and they are also not practical to paint after gluing either. What do you suggest?

Dominik Weitzer
Hm, no answer.
Jimmy, i build for examble the full engine and paint it (spraycan) after that i paint Details.
I remove paint not often. while assambeling the undercarriage, i only remove the paint from the mountingpoints from the axles.
I use glue from Revell or Faller. The ones

https://amazon.de/Faller-Sup..dCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

the chromeparts...i Always remove the Chrom before glueing ;)

I'm with Dominik, I use Revell glue with the fine needle applicator (I even have a brand new tube from the former Beatties).
Always scrape away paint and chrome plating before gluing.
Another thing I am starting to do is remove all the chrome plating with Mr Muscle oven cleaner then re-chrome with a Molotow chrome pen.

One trick I've used for smaller parts that can't easily be painted after assembly, and also can't easily be scraped is to use matte acrylic medium as glue. I only use acrylic paints, so I don't know if this would work for enamels or lacquers, but the acrylic medium sticks well to acrylic paint, and no scraping or touch-up paint is needed. The only caveat is that the acrylic medium takes longer to set than most glues.

I like to think that society moved on to use Tamiya Extra Thin Cement (liquid). The way you use this liquid glue, is to NOT glue the inside, BUT instead press two plastic parts togehter AND then just add liquid glue on the outside of the seam. Excess glue will mostly evaporate, but don't get any onto clear parts. Then use a sanding stick to try hide the glued seam.

You might as well start considering getting to learn an airbursh, which is easy to clean and to use as long as you learn to avoid some basic mistakes. You must have proper ventilation out of your room to use an airbrush, and some basic extractors can be bought without being overly costly.
