Hi matthew

Superb work I liked your information/method on the finishing/painting.

I hope to carry it forward into my 1/72 Revell kit.

Take a large bow for patience and perseverance.

Regards

Sean

Very very nice,

I particulary like the rust effects, what colour oils did you use for those?

I'm about to start my first boot ever... (any ship) ..

The rust streaks were done with oil paints. I cant recall the exact color as the label is worn off, but it is either burnt umber/sienna or raw umber/sienna. I always get the two confused. If you open the top of the tube it will look like rust. Thats the easiest way I can describe it. Hope it helps. "Q"
