  1. Wonderful work Derek - I like how you get the metallic look to your wooden models!

    • Hi David ,answering your question, I use Humbrol 27003 for polished steel.It goes on black (very thin paint) needs a good stir.Wait 30 minutes and buff with soft cloth.Humbrol 27002 and 27004 also gives a metal finish.Regards Derek.

  2. Yet another masterful scratch build from the scratch-building guru...! 🙂
