I'd say you have a nice "Finnish" on that plane lol.

That's certainly some nice details in this scale. Very well done.

Some advice for the Vallejo matte, you can get that finish dead-flat if you dilute it by adding Vallejo airbrush thinner to 1/4 of the bottle and go with light coats over and over and over again. Make sure you shake the crap out of that bottle and get ALL of the white stuff off of the bottom. You'll get mixed results if you don't shake the crap out of it.


Thanks! That's a great tip on the Vallejo. Do you just add about 1/4 of a bottle of the thinner right to the matte varnish bottle and use it straight from the bottle after that? I've been thinning with their airbrush thinner but even then I struggle some with dry-tip and am always afraid of too many light coats getting "frosty."


Very nicely done!



Thanks! Appreciate it.
