In short: is there an equivalent to Krylon fusion available in england?
So, a little more info. There are no asda stores in travelling distance, so I picked up that asda/wal-mart exclusive bumblebee and strafe pack from ebay. Payment went through, error code, tried again... aaand of course got two confirmation emails. Rather than navigating the ebay/paypal order cancellation/refund minefield, I figured I'd repaint the duplicates (I've got strafe's new deco sorta figured out, haven't decided on Bee's new look yet).
I've been looking through a few tutorials, and krylon fusion is recommended for hasbro plastic. Trouble is, I can't seem to get hold of that over here. Anyone know of an alternative?
Hi, fellow Brit here, I used to use Plastikote for my customs, but found is wasn't durable enough for Transformers, also the clearcoat is prone to yellowing. I have recently changed to Hycote car paints, they cost the same as Plastikote but come in bigger cans, also due to them being car paint there great for colour matching to HasTak plastics. I have replaced the crappy Hasbro paint jobs on Universe Prowl, Ironhide and ROTF Superion with Hycote paints and they look great and are really durable too, hope this helps.
