THF-03 Dynastron + Nail Polish = Disaster.


Recommended Posts

So, I ordered the THF-03 Dynastron (which is pretty much MP-36 Megatron by Takara), and the joints in the arms were a bit loose.

 

So, I bought some nail polish to tighten those suckers up. 

 

What I didn't know, was that Nail Polish removed paint from figures.

 

Even though I was using clear nail polish, the figure's paint that wasn't removed was stained.

Could someone help me find out what type of paint was used, and what shade of silver?

You might also check a Transformers-specific forum. I am not at all familiar with the community / hobby, but a quick Google brought me to the TF toy forums at Seibertron, which seem to be active and have a fair number of repair/restore threads.

 

Again, this is a recommendation based entirely on the Google-net, I cannot vouch for the environment of Seibertron's community. But it might be worth a shot.

Nail Polish is all about the acetone. Yipes.

      I have the miniature pictured below. Does anyone know her name? Has she been discontinued? I would like to buy another, but can't find her anywhere.

      The forum won't let me load my pic, so the link is above.

      Alright, I'm putting this up here because I did in fact make the 3D model for this dragon and 3D printed him myself.  I used "Sculpt"ris to design him and add in the details.  I'd like to see what people think of the idea of using 3D modeling and 3D printing to make and test out masters of miniatures and 'if' this thing even belongs in the 'sculpting' section of the craft corner because it's not made of green stuff and I did not poke it and prod it with scary obscure molding tools.
       



      For a little back story on the character himself, this is one of my older characters named "Roal", his main feature that he's the over pampered spoiled dragon prince.  A real lazy brat that roars about being 'fierce' and 'mighty' but due to his size and shape he gets no respect.  I will probably have to keep on bugging Reaper in making a gluttonous fat dragon monster for my hero's to fight against in order to take his/her hoard, but until then I'll just use my dragon Roal instead.  ((I was playing with the idea of having the players do everything they can to prevent the dragon from walking back too far or it's fat torso will get stuck in a narrow part of the cave, permanently sealing it off or not depending on if they let the dragon live.
       
      Anyway, leave a comment.  I'd like to hear your opinions about this.
