    Hi Mike, fraid not, still waiting, reference Churchill class submarine, with a bit of work Mikromir's model of the Resolution class could be shaped into a Churchill class as they were modified Valiants. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resolution-class_submarine All the best Chris

Thats a major undertaking converting a revell VII C, different saddle tank sizes for a start. Not thought of getting the Amati 1/72 VII B, which builds up as U-49? All the best Chris

Submarines, the Ushanka has the Russian Navy badge as worn by Sean Connery in the Hunt for Red October. Yes there is a theme LOL All the best Chris
  7. Humbrol Varnishes

    In the past i have had no problem with Humbrol clear cotes, until now! My bottle of satin cote finally finished, dropped into LHS and noticed large bottle (125ml) of Humbrol clear satin varnish, thought bargain over cost of smaller bottle. (Also noted it was water based, acrylic?) Mixed thoroughly and applied with brush over ferengi marauder, to my horror after drying it looked like it had been frosted!! Tried a second cote, frosting disappeared to reappear when dry, not a happy bunny after all the decal work. Finally found a Humbrol Gloss cote, (old bottle fixed the problem). The Varnish seems to be very hit and miss, as followed advice elsewhere, sometimes you can get a good clear cote then on others it frosts. My bottle is going in the bin. Anyone recommend a good replacement? I note that Humbrol still do the 28ml Satin cote on their website, any thoughts on these? have they become poor quality, like some of their recent paint tins. All the best Chris
