well, you could try fiberglass, tht seems like the most obvious course of action. you won't have the right texture though.

Maybe some jb weld on the backside would be an easy fix.

never repaired plastic either... But a strong adhesive on the inside, and just sanding and painting the outside till smooth sounds like something I'd try.

that's the point, you want it effing strong.... Wait a few more days for more replies. Do a thread search for "scratch" or "gouge" and see if you can find other products. I can't for you I'm mobile.... Someone was praising a product called plasti*****? And it does the same thing you looking for.

model glue would work, but make sure its the kind that looks like water. Not the old school stuff that comes in the orange tube.

The watery stuff works by surface tension, and will spread through that crack and bond almost instantly. if the cracks line up well, you'll never know it was there.
