  1. Really?? $6,000?? For a Tamiya 934

    Not to mention the $55 he wants for shipping.
  2. P.E. benders

    Just google photoetch tools or benders.
  3. Matte clear coat?

    Try Vallejo matt. Works as well as any other I've tried. Might be my imagination but I think that the Dull Coat isn't as flat a finish as it used to be.
  4. Tamiya acrylic paint ?????

    I use plain old hardware store lacquer thinner. Works great for me.
  5. No problems at all. The Tamiya clear colors over the Molotow really look transparent . Be sure to let the Molotow dry completely before coating.
  6. I do it all the time for tail lights, turn signals etc. Works very well. Haven't tried it with anything bigger than a tail light though.
  7. 64 Studebaker Champ pick up. 

  8. "Ghost" Carbon fiber

    You might try Tamiya acrylic clear yellow or red. They're almost transparent but build up color with additional coats.
  9. Restore old decals

    Micro sol and micro set are decal setting solutions. it softens the decals so they conform to irregularities in the surface. Wouldn't work for what you are asking for.
  10. A naked Dragonfly

    Were the wood grain decals from Uschi Vanderrosten?
  11. Lacquer clear coat

    You might want to test it first using the same plastic and decal brand.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I just gave up..

    Doesn't work for my wife, she's always accusing me of losing something of hers.
  15. 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.
