A complaint and the search for a solution; Problem with Revell-Matchbox kit
Topic Started: Feb 12 2018, 05:49 AM (166 Views)

Hello, I like many of the forum, I am a modeler and collector. Recently I raised a big problem, the poor quality of raw material used by Revell Germany in its editions of Matchbox kits. I have been handling my AFV kits in 1/76 and the tracks are with the hard and brittle plastic, also the plastic of the kits is brittle and the paper of instructions is in awful condition. These kits I have kept them in safe environment for 25 years and now that I handle them they are in a bad state, I have kits that have been assembled and perfect for almost 40 years, I have never seen a quality of material as low as these manufactured by German Revell in mid 80s.

The point is that there is no spare for the AFV tracks and all the kits are lost with them, what can I do to replace them?

Hi Flowgar :welcome: to RevellAtions. Unfortunately this is a common problem and not restricted to Revell/Matchbox kits, it's often the case that tracks become unusable after being stored for a long period. It's a problem I'm well acquainted with as I have several Revell/Matchbox and Airfix kits that are affected in the same way. At the moment I have no solutions, if anybody does, please post up.
