I do know that BMF stands for Bare metal foil.
It is a Thin version of Tinfoil that comes with a adhesive backing to do your
Chrome window trim and what-nots instead of using Silver paint.

Other than BMF, one other that I can think of offhand is CA or CA glue. That is more or less a fancy way of saying super glue.

There is also ROG, which is any kit sold by Revell Of Germany.

PE - photo etched parts
BMF - Bare Metal Foil
CA - Cyanoacrylate Adhisive aka superglue
CF - Carbon Fiber - generally refering to decals
SMS - Scale Motorsport - After market company with several propritary model kits. Best know for there CF decals(see above)
HLJ - Hobby Link Japan - Seller of kits and parts from Asia.

These are the most common that I can think of at the moment

What a great idea for a thread.

I did not know some of those,this should be a sticky thread.

Now if i could find out what HMFWIC means.



I'm fearless, but I'm not going anywhere near that one! :P :o :o




Let's just say it's similar to Head mellow fellow Who's In Charge gets as close as we need.

:P

:P :blink: :huh:

Is the MCM for the name of the magazine, or could it have another meaning Harry? Maybe Mentally Challenged Modelers??

What about the 1,900, is that how many kits you have? :P

You're not doing a very good job explaining here Harry!! :P :lol: :lol:

Flip the last M in MCM over, and you get MCW, Model Car World, purveyors of fine scale automotive paints and resin kits.

Oh, and to fans of the movie Pulp Fiction, BMF stands for something else entirely! :P
