Looking good! Do you apply the flat with a brush too?

Thanks John!

I do - very well thinned an in thin coats. TBH, clear coats are the hardest thing about brush painting, just when I think I've cracked it I seem to move two steps back - it's my biggest hate in modelling.

I have progressed this a bit though. I'm now working on the load out.

Yes, clears are extremely difficult to brush. You have done brilliantly on yours!

Well I've finally finished this little Viper, it's not the best kit in the world but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. This is my first full finish of 2021

Alas my camera battery pegged it after this one shot, so more pic's to follow when my camera battery is charged - probably tomorrow.

Cheers!

That is winner, winner, chicken dinner great! Looks quite nice. Well done.

Looks good Stuart! I do love how this turned out.
