    • Aaron's Molloy Chair
      It's true, on the other hand, I now work in the Model Unit, so that's good.    I think it's opal enough, I am playing around with adding a second layer. It actually looks great with one layer, but perhaps just needs to be lifted a *tiny* amount from the surface. But I am pretty chuffed with the acrylic. 
    • Aaron's Molloy Chair
      Geez Aaron, you've let yourself go a little since we last met!   Was the opal acrylic opal enough, or do you want me to try for something else?  I cut about four sheets of it so you could change the opacity by adding more layers if required (or use them to make more Davros consoles)  
    • Aaron's Molloy Chair
      Halfords own brand paint is a relatively new thing (the last 20 years or so, I think). Before that they used to carry paints by Dupi-Color, as did a great many smaller automotive retailers.
    • Aaron's Molloy Chair
      Went to my local paint place and hardware place, neither had satin black, only gloss and matte. So I thought I would try gloss. After spraying up the front console (with a single very, very light coat) it looks far to gloss. I know matte tends to have a slight glossiness to it, so I might try going over top with a light amount of matte to dull it down.   

      There is a slightly reflective quality to the colours used on the original, but it's certainly not super shiny.      It looks to me like it's been resprayed with a Halfords paint, but I couldn't say how glossy it's supposed to be.   
      I also finally unwrapped my 'opal' acrylic. In real life the lights are pretty visible at this distance from the material, but if I lift it up about 3mm from the surface they blur out nicely. Although as you can see from the photo, they look nicely blurred here. One thing I may do is cover the exterior lip with white paint so it less much less defined, as it's quite a harsh dark edge here.   So things are progressing, slowly.
