    Nice clean and sharp work on this model, the shine looks very good.

  2. Don't see too many of these "Twotters"...I like it!

  3. it looks real nice, Allan

  4. Clean looking build. Nice subject too, as in, not seen often!

  5. Looks great ! I did the float version of this in Canadian SAR markings a few years ago. I see Revell has a re-issue----maybe some day.

  6. Hi Allan,

    Great job, and very nice gloss finish. Just a question, have you ever try to enhance a bit panel line, with artist oil color or panel liner several brand produce ( Mig, AK, Tamiya …) ? I believe your Otter will gain a lot darkening a bit engraved Doors, Flap, ailerons etc….

    • Thanks Roberto, I don't really like overly enhanced panel lines, but maybe just a little on things as you said, I do put exhaust stains etc on some models.

    Nice old matchbox build!

  8. Typically neat finish from you, Allan, I like the way you manage to use different finishing materials on various parts of the model but still make it look like one overall finish.

  9. Great and clean build! I love these old Matchbox kits but they needs considerable effort (or TLC?) to make them right 🙂
