I always use spray paints on plastic kits, but I'm not sure what color I used for this particular chair. :no:

How did you paint the chair? What colors/layers and finishing coat did you use? Thanks!

For this piece in particular, I either cut new parts from spares in a way that hid the or covered over the injection holes and marks. The rocking chair posts have a better explanation of how I fix them otherwise.

You may need to prime then re-check/redo as needed. :yes:

How did you get the injection holes and marks on the cabinet door to be less visible? I’m working on it now, and it seems when I try and sand/use an exacto knife to mimic grain it makes the issue more pronounced. Thank you!

Thank you!! :>>

I actually have since bought a Maker to replace this machine since the Explore didn't do everything I wanted. This material is very thin polystyrene sheet, and the Maker did a better job of cutting through.

Old doors do tell stories and this one has quite a story, I am sure. Your technique has created quite an authentic piece. Very nice.

I can hear this door. I think we've all used a door like this. Big heavy boy that you always need to get some large awkward item through, using a wide metal flat cart and of course the one wheel has a mind of it's own.
