well for the gloss coat I use pledge floor shine, and for the dull coat I use Testors Dull Coat Lacquer for the flat coat. Not sure if there is an international equivalent for the gloss.

hope that helps

Hi Doug

Nice one! It's great to see some blue in there in the figures - it really does look much more "Navy".

As I've said before, if there was any way of doing it, you really should try to get another gloss-coat onto the Attacker to represent the 1950s RN finish - but it's looking more and more too late, so I'll shut up about that henceforth!

All the best

Doug,
The workbench with seat and harness assembly cluttered with assorted looks looks incredible.

Doug,
Very well done. The diorama isn't overly busy, but rather complements the Attacker, which does likewise to the rest of the scene.
