Hi all, I was about to order some more tack cloths before moving on to varnishing my model, when I noticed something new to me. Several furniture restoration people are now using microfiber cloths instead, Easyer, cheaper and re usable they say, and just as good. There were also a couple of posts saying they left some fibers behind. That seemed to spark a pro and anti argument.

My question here is have any of you tried microfiber cloths in this way, how did you get on?

Hi Charles

I use both. Microfibre first and then tack cloths.

There is no way I would ditch the tack cloths.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
