    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Some cool stuff everyone! Derex, have you tried poring some resin into the old canopies and made some new ones out of the plugs? Vacuum forming some new ones really is not too tough. Plus you can use the skills on some other projects later on. - MT

    LOTS of AWESOME stuff guys! I wish I had more time to get online and keep up with everything. Arbit, that Falcon is going to be an engineering masterpiece when you're done! - MT

    That came out great Electric Indigo! I like the color scheme. Very different from a lot of conventional schemes. That looks great Urashiman! Nice n clean, but well colored in the panel lines. - MT

    Looking cool Arbit! There are several types of solvents that melt styrene, but Lacquer thinner, Methyle-Ethyl Ketone and Acetone are most common. MEK is what a lot of glues like Testors are made with. I just got Tamiya for the first time (love their tiny applicator brush) and it smells like lacquer thinner to me. PLEASE test on scrap styrene pieces. Sometimes pieces will craze, so test first to also check bonds. Pure solvents also dry faster too. - MT

    Hey Arbit, that will look cool! Two things. Don't worry about lightly sanding and then buffing it out to get rid of the outer seams. Its a pain, but not too difficult. Second, make sure you use a solid solvent type glue. Those with acrylic fillers in them will eventually yellow a bit. I've got old models I never painted and that's what happened to them. You may be able to place one or two lights around it and get it lit up. Clear parts are cool in that they conduct light like fiber optics. I think this will look cool! - MT

    The print looks pretty good. It doesn't look too badly biased either (the layered lines). - MT

    TAMIYA PAINT SALE! MicroMark has most of their Tamiya paints on sale (minus the newer special metalics)! These are the .75oz/23ml ones -NOT the little mini ones! $2.39 each and their surface primers are on sale too. I ordered a ton since most of mine are 16-30 years old (no, not a typo). Most everything was in stock too! Link: https://www.micromark.com/search?keywords=tamiya paint If you haven't looked at their tools, try not to drool on your computer and ruin it! Sorry I haven't been online much guys, too busy! I'm glad to see Urashiman is still alive too! It's been too long man - MT
