  1. Thanks for the help guys, will definitely look into alternative modeling puttys
  2. Hi everyone. About a year ago I bought some Milliput modelling putty for a build I was working on at the time. I didn't use much at the time, so I stored it away for later. Fast forward to present day, and I'm working on a build which requires lots of scratch-building, so I got the Milliput back out to find that one of the sticks had developed a hard yellowy skin on the outside. It seemed to blend ok though after mixing it with the other stick, so I went ahead and applied it to the parts I'm working on. Now a week later it still hasn't fully hardened, and I'm having to scrape it off which is ruining parts of my build. I'm certain it was properly mixed, and i know I'm a fool for not testing it. I'm kicking myself over it now. Has anyone else experienced this with Milliput? Can anyone recommend a better brand of putty that will actually last in storage? Or is this a common trait for putty in general? Thanks Chris

    Chrome paint?

    Hi everyone, I've been scratch building some bumpers and dog dish hubcaps for my most recent build, and I'd quite like to finish them in chrome. I know it is pretty much impossible to get a good chrome finish with paint, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to get a chrome finish on scratch built parts then that would be great! Thanks Chris
  5. bump. sorry if this has been posted before by the wayy
  6. Hi everyone, so I'm in the process of building a 1/24 scale replica of my real life car, and am trying to be as accurate as possible. One hurdle I've come up a against is that I have a fair few decals and stickers in the windows of my car, and would love to replicate them in 1/24 scale, but haven't got the faintest idea how to go about doing this. Is there a way of making my own water transfer decals at home? Or are there any other tricks people have used? Thanks Chris
  7. Hi everyone, so I'm currently building a scale replica of my real world car, and have managed to find some scale wheels and tires that match the look perfectly, but the only problem is they are far too wide! This isn't a problem for the wheels themselves as I can cut them with a craft knife easily, however I am unsure how to tackle the tires. I really don't want to make a mess of it, so I just thought I'd ask first in case anyone has any tips. Thanks guys, Chris
  8. I think everyone else has covered it pretty well by now, but one more can't hurt This has to be one of my favourite engine bays I've seen on here! The wiring is immaculately organised, and I'm a sucker for a big scoop! Don't you dare scrap that beauty haha.
  9. So an hour ago I was about to go to bed, but then I stumbled across this thread and just had to read the whole thing. It's now 1:30am here in the UK but my God it was worth it!! This is some next level stuff, absolutely incredible!
  10. Looks lovely! As others have said, the paint really sets it off. Did you use a clear? Or simply polish the black coat?
  11. That is absolutely mind blowing! I'm absolutely gutted after forgetting that Photobucket screwed all the images so I can't read the build thread
  12. This is a great looking model! I have a soft spot for Le Mans cars as I go to the race every year Would you mind telling me where you got the tyre logos? I've been looking for something similar for one of my builds but can't find anything!
  13. Thanks for the help guys!! Really appreciate it. I shall take everything on board
  14. That's some great advice, thanks very much! I had considered simply polishing the solid colour, but all the tutorials I've watched used clear, although come to think of it, they were all metallic colours too, so it makes sense! lol. I'd rather be safe than sorry, so I'll definitely give it lots of time before pressing on with rubbing an polishing. Thanks again!
