Looks interesting.  The video I watched he applied to aircraft and a tank.  I thought it was a bit overdone on the plane and a bit out of scale.  It it used for 1/35 scale and the plane looked 1/48 or smaller.  Looks easy.  I think you can get smaller results stippling thin putty or Mr. Color primer.

I think you'll get a great result.  I'm going to add tanks to my build stash.  The Tamiya Challenger looks cool.

I gotta ask- what is anti-slip?  Is this the gritty surface for traction, like on top of wing near cockpit?

Yes, but much more gritty on tanks. Some of the stuff almost looks to have gravel or small pebbles on the coating due to its very coarse texture. It's usually applied on the horizontal surfaces of AFVs where crew members are likely to walk.

Tested out the stuff yesterday,it's okay,though I thought the stuff would have more grit in it,but it's almost like when you use Mr Surfacer 500 for texture.

It took some practice on an old hull to get the technique with the brush down,and it looked okay.

Let us see the fruits of your efforts with the stuff Tony. Please. Andy's here carrys  the stuff and I'd like to see if it's worth the price, or perhaps improvise something with sand and paint.
