Was thinking about anti-clime paint so they don't get over the wall - hohoho

Is that 'Anti-Clime' paint that stays wet, when it is dry and dry when it is wet??

I think Anti-Climb paint is more readily available, it just doesn't dry...whatever the weather or climate.

ho,ho,ho....

I think I'm going pay for this comment.

Cheers,
Bigkev

Isn't washing meant to make things 'cleaner'??

Nice work, Msea. I'm ashamed some of my efforts aren't here on the website.
I must do better...…..

Not happy with the 2 test bits I have done , with different thicknesses of acrylic.
So am going to try  with flat sections fastened together and see how that looks.

I think half the battle is getting the temperature right and plunge moulding quickly.
Did you use a naked flame or a hot plate?
I must admit I have never had much success.

Hi Dave it was over a hot plate and tried doing it as quick as possible.
The sides creased very badly and then tried removing them and adding flat sides - but not happy with the finished article. So its the one from solid plates and just waiting for the rivet counters to tell me the Piaggio should have a more rounded front and this and that is wrong with it --- and they will get  %^$£&*%$.. Remember its only a hobby for FUN

But what ships you build.
Some wheels from a kids toy added to the model ( yours Bob will be used to make a second and improved model ) and a coat of primer -- now what colour shall I do it, at the moment it is going to be pale blue.
