Can You say Molotow ?
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 3:15 PM

 No ;

 The cocktail is spelled with a " V " on the end . This is one of the most awesome things I have tried since chocolate ! Of course you don't eat this .But , you chrome the gazing out of small stuff and some unique stuff too ! It comes in 1mm , 2mm , 3mm , and four as well .

 What does it do ? Well , Have you decided that Alclad and / or, Foil , are to much of a hassle for instruments , window frames and such ? Try these pens .They can be refilled too ! Chrome reflectivity is up there with Alclad and I believe it's actually better . 

    No fuss , No muss . Just shake once to get it flowing , then pump the tip four or five times on a firm surface .The flow allows you to do Bezels and small details .Want bigger ? Pump once more for a small drop to form , coat your Piper or Cessna aircraft spinner and Viola !

 Sure makes this kind of detailing easy . Some of you may be on to this . If so let others know . Not everyone is the " King " of drybrushing !  T.B. PS . Like Alclad , it doesn't like to be touched for eight hours after application !

The Molotow Liquid Chrome pen is an amazing tool for the modeler.  I got one to use on cuts from chrome sprues, touchups on BMF, and chroming that single forgotten piece that you need for your build.  The downside is it takes about two weeks to dry completely and that Alclad II Gloss Klear Kote is the only clearcoat that will protect it without damaging the chrome, that I have found so far.

The only Molotov I've heard of here in the UK in the last 60 years, is an empty glass beer bottle or larger, full of petrol with a rag pushed in the top and set light to and thrown at someone or something (building/Police Car)!

Yeah " I get you ;

 These are full of chrome paint and you don't throw them at anything . That's the beauty of it ! T.B.

Molotow liquid chrome is possibly the best thing I've bought recently. I didn't know it existed until the hobby shop guy showed them to me. They had a 1mm, 2mm, and 4mm... until I bought all 3.
