Recent BMF quality question

7 posts in this topic

Posted

Bought two sheets from local hobby shop that has a good turnover of products,  they each contained miniscule, almost microscopic lines.  I called Randy at BMF and was told the roller appling the glue caused this.  I ordered three sheet direct from them, they arrived and each had the same texture issues.  When applied to a model, no amount of burnishing will remove these fine lines, the surface now has the texture of 1/25th alligator skin. They are all over the sheet, not like the big wrinkles I have seen before.  Anybody else having this issue?

Haven't bought a new sheet for awhile,..but the one I am finishing now had lines of bubbles in it,..

When I tried using a piece with these bubbles thru it, it just falls apart,...:huh:

Too bad, it was, a great product...

Experienced the same thing with a sheet of Ultra Bright Chrome Craig, frustrating but I put up with it when I built my '59 Elky mate ;)

My sheets are okay and I got them a few months ago, no lines or wrinkles. If the sheets you got directly from BMF are bad, you should tell them and return them for replacement.

I've bought probably 4 sheets in the past year.

No problems whatsoever.

The last couple of sheets I have purchased from a hobby shop were grainy.  When applied, no amount of burnishing gets rid of it.  Even clear coating and then buffing doesn't totally eliminate it.
