I broke my hubby's Porsche 356 model!
Posted by Mrs.T on Tuesday, October 02, 2018 6:01 PM

Help - I'm wondering how I can repair the damage I did to the model. It dropped on the floor & the plastic seat backs both snapped (cleanly) off the seats. I'm in the L.A area.  I can't tell you anything about brand or make or year but appreciate any advise.

Depending on how easy the seats are accessible you could just glue the back of the seats back on.  You can use regular plastic cement or even super glue (depending on if they are painted you will need to be careful with super glue, but it'll give you the strongest bond and cure faster).  With no more details or pics that is the best I advise I can offer

Mrs T,  If your hubby built the model best come clean and tell him as it would be best for him to do the repair himself! If not seek out a model maker locally (possibly from an IPMS chapter in your area) who would have the expertise if you are worried about attempting to do it yourself. If the breaks are clean a small spot of gel superglue is what I would suggest you use.

Bugatti Fan is right.  You should mention the model falling accidentally. My post was just my suggestion on how to fix it but truth be told when my kids accidentally break something on my model I would fix it right in front of them and they like to watch me do it. Who knows you may find it interesting enough to actually join the hobby. Me fixing the model and every so often when I work on one my son watches me and that's how he got started on doing metal body cars.
