krazi:
What glue are you using that melts the plastic? I've built many kits, and never had that problem. Orange label testors glue for most parts, and mod podge for clear parts like windows and headlights.

I USED TESTORS MODEL CAR CEMENT LIKE ALWAYS.I'VE NEVER EXPERIANCED ANY PROBLEMS BEFORE.THE MODEL WAS MADE IN CHINA AND THE PLASTIC WAS SUB PAR FOR SURE.I COULD TELL WHILE TRIMMING THE PARTS THAT DIDN'T FIT RIGHT .

krazi:
Soft, almost milky styrene? I had a couple lindberg kits like that. Locktite superglue might work when the styrene is like that.

My son made my that hatchback kit for Christmas.  He said that they must of used the old tooling, so the parts didn't fit well and the warping was pretty bad.  He does alot of high end kits, so he's pretty picky.  At least it's available & not for $75 like the original kits from the 70s...   I have a few of the new Pinto '79 cruzin van models, they look much better.  Need to kit bash 2 to make a Pinto pickup model...
