  1. Lacquer clear coat

    You might want to test it first using the same plastic and decal brand.
  2. My method to making a mud effect

    Haven't tried it with body putty yet, but I will. My method for armor models is to mix white glue (Elmer's), water, dirt or sand and whatever color acrylic paint looks right. You can make it as thin or thick as you like and just blob it on with a old stiff brush. Because of the white glue it dries with a shine like wet mud.
  3. Cement holder

    Great idea. Did you know that the Tamiya extra thin isn't good to spill on a decal sheet, from one who knows.
  4. I just gave up..

    Doesn't work for my wife, she's always accusing me of losing something of hers.
  5. Works OK with car windshields, If you are very very careful. Doesn't work so good on aircraft cockpits since they are pretty much sealed up.
  6. Molotow Chrome Questions

    You mean like a food dehydrator? Wouldn't think it would harm the Molotow but don't take my word for it. Clear coats don't look real good over it, I've tried and it didn't work very well. The only places I use the Molotow is where the piece won't be handled, like interior hardware or tail light lens. Painting tail lights or turn signals with the chrome then covering with Tamiya clear really works great.
  7. Spielwarenmesse Nürnberg 2019

    Oooooooooo I have to have that Yamaha DT1. It was my first "real" bike. It hurt me several times but I still love it.
  8. Or go to U Tube and look up painting model cars.
  9. Reveló Paint

    Give em a sniff. You can smell enamel.
  10. The Tamiya clear red works great for me.
  11. Now THIS is ridiculous!

    Yes that is my truck....NO I won't help you move.
  12. The Oddest Thing...

    Hmmm.....You may have a discovered a cool way to rust vehicles.
  13. Wanted: Information on Kits

    Also if you live near a Hobby Lobby you can print out a 40% off coupon from their web site.
  14. Sometimes I hate Hobby Lobby

    Went there the other day and saw all their plastic models were on sale for 20% off, so you can't use a 40% off coupon for a sale item. Not to mention all their high dollar items like airbrushes are "special priced" (which is still higher than most places), so you can't use a 40% off coupon for a "special priced" item.
  15. Lots of pe bending tools out there, the aircraft guys use a lot of pe on their kits. Here's a link: https://www.amazon.com/photo-etch-bending-tool/s?page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aphoto etch bending tool
