Just wondered if anyone has had this problem.

I carefully removed the top off my Bachmann Class 66 to fit DCC only to find on reassembly most of the plastic threads are virtually non-existant. Can anyone recommend a suitable repair/filler compound to fill the holes. Liquid threadlock (Loctite) has been suggested to me but maybe there is a better method. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Thanks for everyone's input, didn't realise this was such a can of worms.
My loco is EWS maroon so perhaps the colour of the plastic has no bearing on it's strength. I bought this model second-hand and thought that the problem may have been caused by rough handling by the previous owner, but I see that this is now doubtful. It's a pity that such a silly fault appears to be present in an otherwise very good and popular model.
