Re: A touch of Ebay Madness?

Randy Hees
 

My first tank of gas was .19 cents a gallon... I was pumping gas at .25 a gallon and yes, got robbed... when the police arrived I was sitting on him...  Our hobby has a tradition of short runs, and prices go up with rarity...  There are rumors of someone trying to buy Eric's business...   If they don't I will miss his kits, but some of the subjects, mostly his V&T kits are being offered now from Shapeways by several young men...

Funny Russ.  I too paid as low as $0.19/gal!

And when I tell the Juniors and Seniors in our Electrical Technology class I was paid $1.05/hr when I started at McDonald's they can't imagine working for that wage.  But then I tell them burgers were $0.17 and cheeseburgers were $0.19 and their eyes bug out!

Rio Grande's web site is still up and it says $20.00 for this kit. This situation is only going to deepen if Eric's kit line goes the way of the Dodo. The asking prices for Jordan Highway Miniatures has gone completely insane! Only hard core collectors of HO scale vehicles can afford them now. From time to time you may find a deal where the seller isn't looking to gouge anyone but those days are swiftly coming to an end.

The other thing is that not all samples of black look the same. If a true match is the quest you may be looking for a suitable paint not filler.

Re: squadron putty

Get some Kadee black spues and grind them up, or sand them into a pile.  Add a trace of liquid glue so its a paste and fill away.  Repeat until satisified.  It may take a week to dry hard, then sand and gloss

I am not aware of a commercial product.

You might try dissolving black styrene in MEK or in any of the liquid cements for styrene, until you get a putty constancy. This will bond well to styrene but is likely to shrink severely. Adding an inert filler to to this should reduce the shrinkage. I would try lampblack, black chalk dust, or charcoal dust mixed into the above, or into a clear commercial bodied styrene cement, adjusting viscosity with MEK or a liquid styrene cement.

This is essentially what the squadron and similar putties are: a fine inert filler mixed with a plastic binder and enough solvent to soften the mix. The older products which were originally intended for wooden model airplane construction used acetate plastic, as did Ambroid's model cement, and neither binds well to styrene. Modern putties for use with styrene are more compatible, being made with styrene but i find them a little short of binder..

Tamiya makes body filler, but not sure of the colors.
