Its a bit hard to advise you as i dont know what type of plastic your using. If it can be stuck using a solvent
type glue.It may be possible to stick a plate over the hole from the inside then using filler to level up.No
doubt a modeller with more experiance can help you more. John.

You seem to have a few hobby shops in your area - perhaps speak to them, see if there is a local club nearby as well. Won't take long for a group of modellers to come up with a dozen ways to help you out.
