MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Detail Master also make photo etch surfer pedals.... https://www.detailmaster.com/collections/etch-parts/products/dm-2200-custom-foot-pedals
  2. That one is 21 and a half inches wide/ 13 and a half inches deep/ 17 and a half inches high. It has three shelves with each shelf taking up to 6 cars side on and 2 face on.
  3. You could have a look around for acrylic food display cabinets as they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The one I have here is completely dust proof and when you work out the number of cars that can be fitted inside it worked out far cheaper than buying individual cases.
  4. I have only ever air brushed Molotow myself and was always perfectly happy with the results but once it turns grey I've found its no longer fit for purpose
  5. We had a thread running on this topic recently. Myself and others have experienced Molotow going off.....
  6. ebay seller crazycar19 sells a set of 5 hand laced wire wheels for $135 to suit this kit. I believe this vendor is Fernando Pinto of FPPM model kits. I have a set here and while expensive they are excellent quality quality and a vast improvement on the kit supplied rims.
  7. Some rims have just rolled in from eBay seller oleks-dmitr. Excellent quality and quick delivery
  8. Molotow going off has occurred to others on this board and I've experienced it myself. I had bought both of these refills together about 18 months ago and while the one to the right had never been opened the left one had been partly used and has turned to a gunmetal grey.
  9. Not my video Josh. All I did was link it here. All thanks goes to the Barbatos Rex You Tube channel which has dozens of similar comparison videos. It's well worth checking out. I obtain my E7 clear off Ebay and placed an order just last week for their chrome and specialty paints. Tracking is showing it has shipped but delivery time will be uncertain especially living down under.
  10. This video that compares all the clear coats has just gone up on YouTube. I had always found Alclad and Molotow both reacted the same to clear coating.
  11. If you scroll to the bottom of the Slixx home page and click on the image of the decal sheet on the printing press it takes you to a video on their Facebook page. https://www.slixx.com
  12. X2 on everything Bill has said. I just used lacquer thinner to clean my airbrush after using the sealer. The sealer is ready to use from the bottle and requires no thinning just like the Molotow. Both the Molotow and the e7 sealer need to be sprayed wet. Provided you give the Molotow at least a week to dry you can get away without the sealer provided you carefully handle the painted parts with dry clean fingers but it does give a longer term protection.
  13. I had been reading positive things about e7paints chrome sealer lately so I went ahead and purchased a couple of bottles off Ebay. They have now arrived and today I sprayed some over Molotow I had sprayed a week ago without doing any surface preparation of any kind. The manufacturer describes it as a synthetic resin coating and its the only clear coat I have sprayed to date that doesn't effect the shine of Molotow in a perceptible way. The part on the right has a coating of this chrome sealer while the left side is just plain Molotow. I just sprayed one wet coat and I've found I can now handle my Molotow painted parts as much as I like without seeing any of the usual loss of shine that can occur.
