Well the power came back on and I was able to finish up the car I was working!! Also the 1mm marker started working again...YAHOO!! I had to laugh BT cause I kinda did the same thing and made a little mess myself :lol: :lol: !! Anyway, this car I worked on(which is a test car) I learned a not so good lesson when your working with chrome and CA...back when I was gluing the chrome on I was using CA and for some reason on this particular model the chrome hazed up all over both front chrome and back!! So I ended up using Testors Silver Chrome to cover it up!! So today I figured what the heck I'll just try and paint over it with the new markers and WOW... what a great job these markers did!! I used all 3 markers...1-2-4mm and they worked great!! Hopefully you can see the difference in the pics of the Testors silver chrome and the new Molotow chrome markers!! It's not the most professional job but I'm happy with it!!

I think this one shows the best in the paint difference...on the right is the TSC and on the left is the Molotow, look at the shine difference!!

This is the rear bumper and boy what a difference it made!!


Image
This is a side view of how it came out. I did not have any TSC on the side rails but the door handles and name tags did have it on!!

Image
One more, just to show it's shinyness!!

One thing I did notice is is that if you go back over an area that you have already done, it heavy's up and you will notice it when it dries up!! Some spots that I thought I got too heavy I just took a paper towel piece and dabbed it to soak up the overflow!!

Overall I'm very happy with these markers and will be using them to pretty up some other cars chrome areas that I would never have attempted before!! Hope this helps others!!!

My set of markers came in on Friday in the end. I had a play with them & in my opinion they live up to the hype. I've never been able to replicate chrome like this at home, ever! I was hoping the 1mm would be a bit finer for small detail work, but it is pretty good. The flow of the chrome out of the pen is controllable which is great. It doesn't pour out all fast unless you keep pressing the tip down. I'll use the markers for fine detail work as well as large bumpers & things that are not chrome plated. Ill be staying with Bare Metal Foil for window trim & side markings though as you won't ever get as crisp lines as the foil.

I'll take a photo later showing my results. They are super! In my opinion the 1mm marker is about perfect for 1/32 use. The 4mm is giant! So if you want to give one a try, you can't go past the 1mm.
Thanks

Hey...you might want to check out your local Hobby Lobby cause they have their Molotow paint markers on clearance...not a big selection but did grab a couple that were left!! Also looks as though the AMT 1/32 '65 Mustang is a stocked item now... bought one last week and they restocked it...JFYI!!

Hi guys, has anyone found any more clear coats that do not dull the finish of the Molotow chrome ?
So far I have heard that "Future" acrylic [forgot the new name] ,and someone had posted that Ace brand clear enamel seemed to work .
Any others so far ?
Or more feedback on these 2 ?
Thanks,
Randy

Using Future (Pledge Floor Shine) and works fine. Have not used any other clear coat for years, so others can chime in on that.

This information from Jevries
air brushing the liquid produces a finish you can`t get by using the pen.


Liquid Chrome by Molotow shot through airbrush. Bottom wheel is vacuum plated ! Cleared with Angelus

Thanks for the updates guys. That's interesting on the acrylic for leather. It's pretty low cost too.
You never know what will work for something.
Harry, I assume you handle your cars a lot. That trim probably gets touched quite a bit. Does the pledge floor shine seem to wear off from body oils ?

Sure it will wear off over time. But it seals the decals and gives a decent shine at the start. I also buff the Future with car wax as a final.

But yes, over time and close combat, it does wear away. I like the battle scars, so when I clean them up, I just buff out with more car polish and call it good.

Yeah, I kind of like my battle scars, too. I built the car my team used for an Enduro a few years back (a Scaley '69 Camaro), and when I brought it home, it had no bumpers, or mirrors, and the front was full of cuts and chips. The roof was scratched badly, and the spoiler as well as the rear end were clobbered. I wouldn't change a thing. I shine it up a bit with the McGuire's spray stuff that Harry recommended and put it in a place of honor. I barely resisted making a plaque that said "Crusader's Wounds", but got embarrassed.

WOW Mark! Thank you for sharing those pictures - that is IMPRESSIVE!
Looks like I need to find a "refill" to try running some of that through the air brush!

Mark, are you saying somebody opened the pen and got the liquid out and used it through an airbrush?
