Newsletter 144: Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)

Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)

Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)
Not so long ago some guys invented the 'black chrome' which is a chroming technique using chemicaly modified chrome to get a deep black tone, while mantaining the glossiness and reflectivity of classic chrome. The lads at Bare Metal Foil have recreated this effect in one of their famous adhesive sheets, and of course SpotModel was not going to miss it :)

Some more interesting things for this week, such as some discontinued kits of the Porsche 935 in 1/20 scale from Tamiya, a couple of MFH books about 1977 Grands Prix (Grand Prices? Grand Prixs? Grand Prixes? Well, several of them :), the arrival to stock of several decals from Studio27, and the Heller Renault R5 kit that replaces the discontinued kit from Tamiya.

Also, don't miss the restocking of Microscale Liquid Decal Film, an essential helper if you need to use old decals.

So mirror, mirror on the wall, who's going to get the deepest and shiniest blacks of all? :D

Microscale: Decal products - Liquid decal film

Reference: MI-12

Everyone who models and uses decals should have Micro Liquid Decal Film, especially if you have been modeling for some time. The typical decal scrap box is not the best place to store the decals. When exposed to air, sunlight, moisture, great swings of temperature or general abuse, decals will go bad. Maybe you just always have had trouble putting on thin stripes. Micro Liquid Decal Film solves all those problems and makes a decal, which, for what ever reason, is bad, work again just like new almost immediately. Of course, if you have already put it in water, it is too late.
