Good Morning.
I have come across some of these models in good condition but the plastic window has faded and/or cracked.
Does anyone know of a supplier of this type of polyester(?) window and what adhesive is best for bonding the plastic to the cardboard box ? :confused:
All advice, answers greatly appreciated :up:

Hi Weareracing,

What you want is Clear Acetate sheeting which can be found at most of the more 'hardcore' art supply stores, where it comes on giant rolls, and you can request exactely how much you need (probably much cheaper than buying sheets over the internet)
I believe .010" mil thickness is what I've used - a very close match to Minichamps windows...
