  • WTB Strombecker 1/32 Chaparral 2D "Clear" glass

    Hi Folks, does anyone have "Clear" glass for a 1/32 Strombecker Chaparral 2D ??.........I have a few "blue" glass pieces, but, am looking for "Clear".......looking for something in very good shape.

    Happy to buy/trade

    Cheers

        If you don't get success finding one, I may be able to make a vac-form using your blue one as a model.

          Many thanks for the very kind offer........I am going to hold out a bit longer in my search.......I have had this body shell for 20+ years, so a few more weeks won't hurt !!!

        Here she be Dale.................this one has been sitting around for eons, and while I would like to do a proper build on it, this one has "blue" glass, and every time I look at it, I dejectedly put it back into the box. They do come with "clear" glass, and while I could certainly find one on epay, I thought I would check with the good folks here first.

        Strombecker really captured the look of this car (as they did with many of their cars), and with a bit of work they can be made into some terrific looking models.........so,.......if anyone has a "clear" glass piece, I would be more than happy to purchase it, and let this Chappy live again

        Cheers

          Chris,


          I have this kit if you have any interest. The glass is vacuum formed along with one of the interiors

            Many thanks Rico,.........I am going to hold out for an original "injected" glass for a while longer, but, may be forced to go for a "vac" version in the future...........by the way, yours look quite good !!,....again many thanks !!

            Dale, Thanks for checking.......appreciate your efforts !!............the body I have is just fine, It is only the glass ("blue") that is the issue...I will find one eventually.
