  10. Rob back to top of the page I am using the Vallejo gel for the main base stippled on using the bakers spatula and then using cotton wool soaked in the Vallejo clear water thinned out using a brush to shape the wave crest. When I get round to planting Gorleston after this i will do a step by step to try and explain the method or at least try and explain it without putting people to sleep. HTH and Stay Safe I take it now you are part of the OAP brigade. Keith

I know @Silenoz has already started another BLOG but that has stalled while he builds a Harrier. So a quick build for me while waiting for the sea base on my BYMS build to dry between coats of wool and water. Some clean up and a couple of weld seams to add before primer on the Sea Dart i will be going for the red training colour to make it stand out a bit more. Stay Safe beefy

Small up date getting close to the finish line now base has had a coat of paint over the textured water which when dry will get another coat of clear water and then to add the cotton wool bow waves And the Name it nameplates have arrived for my current builds great service again from this company.
