Nice looking results Dan. Did you crack open the pen?
I bought a 30ml refill. The top of the pens come off so you can refill them.

The 30ml cost me just under $35. I bought it off EBay. The seller was in the UK.

I found that same add just after I posted the question. Damn expensive. We have a dealer here in Canada, going to try there first.

It might be expensive, but you can't argue with the result.

It appears to be the best thing on the market.

Nice work Dan, do you have to decant it all at the same time and put the rest into a jar? and how much ink/ how many coats did it take?

The refill bottle has what I'd call an eye dropper tip. Just squeeze some out and put the cap back on.

I didn't use much ink at all. I would say that the level was around 5mm high in my cup, and I used three fills at the same level.

I gave the wheels 3 or 4 passes.

I'm also going to experiment with using a real fine brush, and see how well it applies. The 1mm tip is even quite large for certain task.

I believe Molotow says you can refill the pens up to 10 times depending on the size of pen. The 1 & 2mm have the same size barrel, the 4mm has a larger barrel.

progress Shay.



I am not going to bother with my current build idea project I had posted to join in with. Simply too much for my current build load of stalled kits and other ideas I should pursue and complete first.

Sorry guys.

Thanks guys.

The chop was done really well by a mate of mine in Detriot, he tidied it up, but it needed just a tiny bit more filler.

Oh and if anyone needs parts to be chromed/rechromed properly let me know, he's just taken over a chroming business,I won't peddle his wares here, so PM me if you need anything done, even anodising or gold plating I'll put you in touch with him.

Ha, I ordered this a couple weeks ago. It showed up today.

I simp,y couldn't resist not joining in. Just didn't want to say anything until it actually came in.



Starting on this tonight.

I decided to give it a modest 3 scale inch chop.
Initial chop and fit done. Obvious further work is required.

I will Shay. It will involve reshaping and fitting new pieces and cutting back some areas.

Hi guys, I started on trimming the fit issues.

Shay here you go, a bit of a tutorial. I us the knife to cut/trim as much of the window openings I can with without noticeably altering the look. On panels and flat sections I like scrap the knife to remove material to line up the surfaces.
In the third picture you can see the right C-pillar has been scraped to a rough fit. The window opening on the right side is going to require some sculpting/shaping to get the window lines to line up.

The A-Pillars are going to take another technique.

Of course the panel lines will also have to be altered and aligned.

Thanks Curt, looks great you can sort of bend back the top of the A pillar I believe?

I must ask George exactly how he did my one, the plastic was untouched on the outside, not even sanded or filled, the step you have on the rear pillar is still there on my one except it's on the inside, seems all the work was done on the inside, but I can't see any grinding or sanding, just tiny amounts of filler.

Keep going!

Hi guys,

I decided before I jumped into this build that I wanted a chopped top. Alway on evil bay I found a chopped Jimmy Flintstone shell. In the add the chop looked clean. This POJ showed up. I know JF stuff is rough but this is outrageous. I have posted my progress to show the comparison.

I have put a claim in with Pay Pal and eBay.

I have three Jimmy Flintstone resin bodies. One is really clean, with little flesh. The other two are pretty bad. One is worse than the one you got.

I was going to get one of those too originally, but I was warned off them.

Looking good, guys. I have done several of these over the years. I think I have chipped every one of them, some quite severely.

I have another shell of a different body that is great, my LHS sells JF stuff, the shells I have looked at are pretty good.

The eBay listing says no returns. I guess they don't really want this crap either.

Anyway, I sent along a nice letter with the pictures I posted here of my chop stating I only have a few hours into mine and it's not even close to being done and looks way better. Further stating the shell I received looked like it had been done by a first timer and should never have been cast.
They, 'Jimmy Flintstone', agreed to a return. The issue now is, I am stuck with paying the return shipping which is about $10.


If the shell actually looked like this I'd be happy.

Did you pay via PayPal Curt? If so open a dispute with them, you should not have to pay return shipping.
