Hi to all, Thanks for information about crackle finish paints, i will look up the leads. When i was apprentice at land Rover there was a special paint shop we could send components to have different finishes applied,at that time LR had seventeen plants around Birmingham that fed Solihull the assembly plant with all the different components for their vehicles and if you couldn't get a process done at one plant there was always one of the other unfortunatly that has all gone for me, at work at the moment i can have most thing done or sent away to be done in the way of a haet treatment of surface treatment applied like Tecvac(Titanium Nittride)or say a carbide surface coating of layer put on to a Titanium shaft or chrome plating or a plastic or paint finish, but at the moment we have found it difficult with the companies that we use to have a crackle finish. Hopefully you have all answered the question. Alan thanks for the link on to the current Chris Heapy's pages. yours John Burridge > Message Received: Feb 11 2006, 04:32 PM > From: john.burridge@xxxxxxxxxx > To: modeleng@xxxxxxxxxxxxx > Cc: > Subject: [modeleng] Krackle finish paint > > Hi to all, > Please does anyone know how they get the krackle finish on engineering tools > as i would like to do this type of finish? > > BTW I had my copy of MEW(112) the other day but still waiting for the two > copies 110 and 111 that they havn't sent me even though i have rung them > twice,I waited the ten days that they said it would take then i re-rung to no > avail > > yours John Burridge > > P.S.
