Marmon 57P Conventional

Recommended Posts

Hello, today i want to show you my Marmon 57P from aitm.
Donor Kit was the Marmete/Petemon from Revell of Germany. Rims, tanks and horns are aluminium parts from MCA, the stacks are from KFS. A novelty was using the new Molotow Liquid Chrome with airbrush to chrome the bumper, grille and rear fenders. I am really impressed by the effect. Have fun with the pictures and thank you for looking in.

Best wishes for all of you.

The Marmon doesn't get much love in the model world. You did an amazing looking build there. Great color & details

Very impressive Conventional ! Is this the conversion kit that originally came from Frank Gortsema in the 80's?

You did a great job here, Michael!

You don’t see these much, that’s a shame. What a beautiful example. The aluminum parts are great. I’m very impressed with the Molotow. What did you use for a primer coat under the Molotow? Any clear as a seal topcoat?

I am not sure Helmut. In a german forum someone says the kit from Frank Gortsema is the base for kit from Dave Natale. I do not know if this is the truth.

There is no need of any base coat under the chrome Cary. On the bumper i sprayed the chrome directly to the resin surface. On the grille i used a flat black coat and then mask the mesh with Tamiya tape. There are only two things to consider. You need more than one layer of the Liquid Chrome Ink und you must give the pieces at least 72 hours to dry. You can not touch it before, because the chrome will go dull.

Thanks! That’s good to know. 72 hours between coats, or just 72 hours before handling after the final coat?

Nicely done!  It's amazing what the Molotow chrome does.  One of the best modeling materials to come our way in a long time.  Thanks for sharing!

Only after the final coat. On the bumper i make some mistakes, was my first try. The first layer was not thick enough, so all of the scratch on the surface was seen.

The next mistake was then to dilute with Tamiya Thinner. Not a good idea, because the chrome will go flat as you can see here.

One day later i decided to dilute with Nitro Thinner and sprayed again several layers. The ink is very viscous and after several layers all scratch from the resin is gone.
