Lost the lenses for the brake lights in a model?
No problem, just plug up the mounting holes in the back of the lens space (if there are any) and fill the opening with transparent red paint. It may take several coats but the result is pretty nice and sure beats cutting small pieces of red house rap tape.
Looking for a cheap filler for small cracks and chips?
Dissolve cut up sprue or wast styrene in the last of the gungy liquid glue - we all have these tail end bottles kicking around - and you have the prefect thing.
I know is as Spru-Goo and use it quite a bit. By choosing one colour of stryrene you can have any multiple colours to match the base colour of any model.
I have only done this with stryrene so cannot say if it works with other plastic materials.
