Do you know where to get just the right piece of tubing for a BFG barrel? Found a sewing shop that has the exact material used for a snowtrooper duster? Then post links here and let us all know :)

For my ESB Vader helmet I needed mesh for the "mouth" and found this at Biltema: http://biltema.se/sv/Bil---MC/Bil-tillb ... nat-32101/

Additional idea, update the first post every now and then to have alphabetical listing of everything mentioned?

Humbrol paints can be found in most hobby stores. See if you have a "Hobbex" near you.

Hi!

Rubbing alcohol / Isopropyl for cleaning areas prior to applying decals, paint or glue. Especially decals.

I've spent hours in Gothenburg reading labels behind bottles of spirits and stuff, didn't find the name isopropyl there.

Anyone else used rubbing alcohol for that purpose in Sweden and may have pointers?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Nicky


EDIT: wait... so you say that hand sanitizer is like rubbing alcohol? I thought it was about rubbing things to dissolve residues... is rubbing alcohol for rubbing backs? :S

Um.. Isopropyl alcohol can be found in "Ytdesinfektion Plus", found at apoteket. The hand sanitizer is isopropyl alcohol as well, but with added oils and stuff you might not want for your particular application :)

the online store: www.holte-modelhobby.dk
