Hello I have a poloron nativity set that was put up every year since 1956 on my grandparents farm. I just inherited the set as my grandparents can no longer do the decorating due to health and moving. My grandmother earned the money by sewing and used it to buy the display. Sadly after more than 50 years on display some jerks stole the baby Jesus and the camel last year. I will be putting this up at my house which is a different location and will have a very strong electric fence put up around the set.
All of the pieces need repair. The noses and corners and some seams need to be glued or have material spliced in.
i figured I could use milk jug or other misc plastic to splice, melt, cut and glue. I thought for some contoured and textured pieces I might have to use propane torch to shape or contour and then glue on?
I didn't find much searching the forums. I would really like some help or recommendations from those who have repaired these before. I don't want to do it wrong and have the repaired parts show up opaque after fixing or have to do it again. I also think I need to repaint them all after stripping them but don't want to damage them by stripping them wrong.
A few of the pieces are shown.
