Guys, I have received an M3 E30 DTM AUTOart, and the rear spoiler was detached on the left.
This is a little problem, solved with a specific model cars glue. In any case, it should not happen on such a model AUTOart.
In their defence that could happen to any make, not just them. I think it would have happened en route to you.

Yes, you are right, happens to all producers of model cars.
Infact, in this case, I resolved shortly the problem.

Just use tamiya model glue -

Tamiya 87038
https://www.amazon.c...d=AQK11O1HS2GGC

Tamiya 87012
https://www.amazon.c...=A2OEG1SKNGURE1

I like this application better than battling testors model cement. Any of those will lock any part down. Make sure to clean off the ends with sand paper slightly or file them to get the cleanest contact
