Cement and Paint Bottle Holders
I have had the pleasure of taking a firsthand look at two of Model Impossibles’ newest releases; Cement and Paint Bottle Holders.
These holders are specifically designed and constructed around many of the most used modelling cement bottles and applicators on the market today. Each holder is created from the exact dimensions of these bottles making for a secure fit.
Many modelers today have found the use of the cover attached applicator provided with the adhesives is not as precise as using various small-tipped paint brushes and applicators to apply the adhesives. Models Impossible has incorporated a convenient lid holder into the base as well as two paintbrush and/or applicator holders into the design. After speaking with Mr. Ivancso he let me know the design possibilities are limitless. What ever can be thought up as a useful aid to the modeller for his or her bench, can be made.
The wide base to these tools prevents unwanted spills while the on board paint brush and lid holder keep things organized. As you can see there are several design like the duel Microscale Bottle holder. Similar construction to the Tamiya Thin Cement Holder but specifically designed to hold Microscale’s bottle shape securely with separate tool holders incorporated into the design.

I found the Cement and Paint Bottle Holders from Models Impossible to be one of the more innovative ideas to land on my bench. These holders eliminate the unwanted spilling of glues and paints as well as a helpful way to organize the bench. Model Impossible is designing new bench accessories every day and along with creating scale models, Models Impossible is capable of sourcing custom part fabrications with provided CAD or similar program design and I look forward to seeing what comes out of the printer next.
I will have to give my full recommendation of the entire line of Cement and Paint Bottle Holders from Models Impossible. These are innovative ideas turned into useful tools that can help any modeller from the beginner to the most experienced My recommendation for these holders comes in part after being able to evaluate two of the products first hand and seeing the quality of the product and its potential usefulness but also for the fact that no matter how hard I try NOT to knock something over on my bench or work table it is inevitably going to happen and these unassuming, relatively simple tools should prevent this from ever happening again! These bench-mate tools get an A+ from me!
I would like to give special thanks to Thom Ivancso and Model Impossible for providing My Hobby Info with these review samples.
