I can't remember how long ago I had bought a couple of the pens but for some reason I do remember throwing them away for some reason. I might try them again soon and just see if they will work again for me. Thanks

If you do find that the tip on the larger markers has dried up, you can recover it by spraying it with a spritz of airbrush cleaner/liquid reamer, pulling it out, flipping it round and doing the other end as well if necessary. Just make sure that you get the ink flowing through and rewetting the tip by drawing on some scrap paper before applying it to the model, otherwise you'll be applying airbrush cleaner to your topcoat...

best,

M.

When I was restoring this '63 Porsche 356, I used the Molotow Chrome to redo the wheels and mirrors.

One thing I remember is that I put the wheels in the dehydrator, but not right away. I think I waited a bit till the paint was dry to the touch, then put them in to fully cure. But..........like others have said, the paint is not that durable for excessive handling, so it's a good idea to make this one of the LAST things you do before calling it all done.

And yes, I've found that the refills do seem to work better than the pens. The pens can be iffy after a point, but the refills if kept tightly sealed should last you quite a while.
