I’m working on an old kit -at least 25 years old I believe - and the transfers seem to have become brittle. Even after a good soaking in water, they are breaking as I try to apply them. Any ideas or suggestions?
Martin Oostrom She looks very nice David. The chrome is oob? I think I would have stripped and repainted that.
Red and white give her a nice attractive dress

David Wx Yes, the chrome is as supplied. I've not done any stripping / rechroming. To be honest, not sure how I'd go about it. I'm using Tamya rattle can sprays and I can't see anything that would work better than the prechromed. Not a lot of purchase options in rural Australia. And I'm a bit wary of kitting myself up witha Spray unit...
Martin Oostrom Welcome to the hobby!
Beware though, this site can cause serious bout of "I want that kit and that tool and that paint" etc. Just remember to keep the fun part!
Nice job for a first build
Lindberg 1929 Mercedes Benz SSK
I bought four old (1970s?) kits of Mercedes Benzes which included a Lindberg Classic Replica Seriies 1929 SSK. I cannot find this in your list of kits.
Does anyone have any info on it?
