need some lenses for the lights on the sides of my famo, any ideas? can i get some lenses that will fit these? i have have very limited experience with vehicles with lights so this is a bit new for me....
I am not familiar with famo but general modelling techniques that work are;
Sidelights- drill out shell. Stretch some clear sprue to approx diam, round and polish one end, cut to length and stick in shell with Micro kristal klear.
Headlight - Drill out, and either (a) insert aluminium reflector made by pressing out a dome from foil, or (b) paint with silver paint and when dry coat with Future.
Using stretched sprue as above to make 'bulb' and stick to back of hole.
Cut disc of clear material for glass - I use thin clear from food packaging, PET bottles etc (anything thats free!) and stick in place with Micro KK. A coat of future when finished will add a nice gloss.
Alternatively small lights, sidelights, tail lights can be very effectively replicated by using BareMetal foil over the kit plastic, with a coat of apprpriate clear colour and a final coat of Future.
