  1. Tamiya TS13 or Testors Wet Look for gloss. Krylon Colormaster Satin for satin clear. Testors Dullcote for dead flat clear.
  2. I occasionally use my Dremel with this type of bit in certain cases like getting glass free from the locators. Be steady and careful.
  3. Does this work for you? https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/testors/testors-lamborghini/
  4. Thanks guys! The handle of the one from Micro Mark looks identical to mine as well. Now I have some choices.
  5. I'm having trouble locating a replacement 3 sided scraper for the one I've had for quite some time. Mine is still functional, but I'd really like to get another to have when the time comes that I need it. I found it on Model Craft Tools USA but they are out of stock and don't know when, or if, they'll get more. Not sure how many of you use this tool but it's one of my favorites. Anyone have any ideas where I can find one for sale? Thanks
  6. The pic may not show it very well but the filler panel is fully covered. Good tip about the clear over the foil. Thanks
  7. BMF worked great to mask that tight area. Should peel off nice too
  8. Never thought of BMF! In this case maybe easier than masking tape. Thanks
  9. I was more worried about the tape pulling the chrome than pulling the cleared filler panel color. If the Alclad stays down that'd be great. I guess I could do a test piece with Spaz and Alclad and see. Just wondering if anyone had tried pulling tape off dried alclad or spaz. Thanks
  10. I'm trying to figure out my next move in trying to finish the front bumper on my '60 Bonneville. I've shot the filler panel behind the bumper with the final body color and cleared it, so far so good. Now for the chrome. I had thought of masking the filler panel and then shooting preferably Spaz Stix chrome or Alclad II chrome, but masking it may be a nightmare. I'd also thought of using my Master Mask goopy film but it only works good when you can put it on rather thick. I began brushing it on but gave up when it seemed it was going to be hard to get it on thick enough. So, short of cutting the bumper off to give more room I was thinking I'd just go ahead and shoot the whole front end chrome, then after really dry go back and mask off the grille, headlights, and bumper and shoot the filler panel again with the body color. Will the tape pull off either the Spaz Stix or Alclad? I'm guessing it will pull the chrome off. I use Tamiya tape exclusively.
