This package-kit is offered only in the Alumide material. Alumide offers the best strength and toughnes necessary to construct these parts. Just as in a real automobiles, the suspension parts are some of the highest stressed parts. Alumide material, after being coated with superglue and allowed to dry, offers the best combination of cost and strength.
The modeler should increase the strenght properties of this material by applying a heavy coat of superglue to the 4 lower control arms. The superglue will quickly absorb into the material and once it is dry will form a very stiff strong part. The modeler can apply a second lighter coat of superglue to improve the surface finish of the parts and aid in the finishing process. Care should be taken by the modeler to assure that no bolt holes become plugged with superglue during this process.
We at TDR Innovations know that large scale kits can be quite expensive for the average modeler. So we are trying a novel approach, now you can purchase small package-kits of the TDR 427 Roadster. While you are finishing and detailing your new package-kit purchase you can be saving for your next package-kit from TDR. That way your investment in your model kit increases at your pace.
