Bought this off ebay seller listed it as mint condition but when i checked it out, it as some damage on the inner shelves. Does anyone have any good ways to fix the cracked plastic, its thin so its a little delicate.

Maybe fix it with plastic model glue.

If you can find the liquid plastic model cement, not the Testors stuff, the kind that is solvent based from Tenax, Plastruct, or Microweld, you\'ll have a better fix. Microweld will work on Lexan and some other plastics, in addition to styrene. Use it sparingly, too much will deform the plastic. Micro Mark sells some called Same Stuff, cheaper than Microweld and works for me.

Glue doesnt stick degrading plastic. The best answer is white sticky backed plastic, used on the inside for support,which if still insufficent can be strengthened with a layer under each car.Anybody collect Blue Peter badges?
