    Vallejo Reducer.

    I'll never don't give up to recommend my method. Everyone who tried this, never go back to use nail polish, floor polish, etc. Pure polyurethane. Very liquid. Use a half drop, move the articulation, let it dry several hours, then use another half drop. Do it till obtain the tightness you like. Normally for me, it works with the first or second drop. No more. No peeling, no flaking. Invisible to the eye. Just perfection.

    In my opinion I'll never put KiKi or floor polish on a figure... Parfums, wax, cleaning chemicals mixed with water and polyurethane... I don't know how the people is capable to use this things instead pure polyurethane.

    Vallejo Reducer it's a commom product for reduce paints, very cheap. You won't finish the bottle in your whole life.

    The formula for "future" is only available in North America, so if you have a similar product in Spain, it is certainly not the same thing as what we have.

    "Seeking a primary source, I sent this list of names to S.C. Johnson for clarification. A company spokesperson wrote back, “The formulas for the products you shared are all different and not identical to the formula for Pledge FloorCare Finish. The formula used to make [PFM] is only offered in the United States and Canada.”" -- In the past, it was Future | Finescale Modeler Magazine

    As you say, it may not be pure, but I have been using it for years and it has never caused any harm. Only thing is, if you manipulate the joint often, you may need to reapply until the coat is thick enough.

    I'd love to try the one you mentioned, but I doubt I will ever run out of future in my lifetime... the bottle is huge and it takes just a tiny drop at a time lol

    If you have any white craft glue/ PVA that can grip a bit better that nail varnish- while still allowing a plastic part to be removable. I find it useful for things I want to stay in place while minimising the chance of breaking things if I want toget them apart.

    By the way, I don't know if you can send me an image or a thread, or maybe just tell me with your experience, if Rodimus Prime Mech Fans, it is the size of Blaster, because I know that the 2 are 12, but Optimus Prime HS is 12.5 cm., I don't know if I'm wrong.

    And another question which Autobots enter into the Optimus Prime load, I will appreciate it if you answer me at 2 questions

    1) Rodimus and MFT Blaster are basically much the same heigh. HS Optimus is taller but not by much. i have three figures but I haven't looked at them for quite a while now.

    2) Are you talking about HS Prime's trailer? If so, TW Whiskey Jack, NA Datsun Bros & Bumblebee fit inside the trailer. NA Jazz does not, his wide fender flares get in the way. I can't recall if MST Lambros - Sideswipe & Red Alert - fit in the trailer.

    Well, thanks for answer me, because I have HS Optimus Prime, and his size is 12,5 cm, but I saw one picture than Rodimus Prime and Optimus have same size, but I know that Rodimus is 12, but Optimus is 12.5, I don't know it's confusing

    [QUOTE = "RedEG6, publicación: 18452811, miembro: 127626"] es la mejor foto que puedo tomar para verificar / comparar la altura sin romper la regla. Diferencia de altura muy insignificante, en mi opinión.

    [ATTACH = full] 28822327 [/ ATTACH] [/ QUOTE]

    Well, thanks for the photo, but my Optimus seems than he's more taller than Rodimus and Blaster for 0,5 cm. ツ

    You should also check these threads, as they are more for comparing and this is the MFT thread.
    Show off your 3P legends scale figures here!
    and there is a whole thread dedicated to just comparisons
    comparison thread

    I had taken a couple of those a while back, too.

    Ikea Hemnes
    HEMNES Bookcase, white stain, 35 3/8x77 1/2" - IKEA

    Its deeper than a billy but not as tall.
    Its really easy to light due to the gaps between the shelf and the sides of the bookcase. Its quite a bit more expensive and a real major negative is the holes for the shelves do not run the entire length of the shelf. That being said I wish I had bought a second one for my other shelf instead of the billy I bought.

    BILLY before I loaded it with figures (do not have another pic atm)

    Well I already had the opportunity to see that image and now that I have Optimus and Blaster, I see that Optimus is bigger, by half a head, so I get confused

    Vallejo Reducer don't need to reapply. A bottle costs 6$. Try it, you will be surprised.
