hope that helps.
take care of yourself and if it is any consolation last time i was hit by a vehicle it was a four ton truck, knocked me sqaure across a two lane road. When i woke up with two broken legs i thought i'd died ...then the pain kicked in.
take care of yourself.
Paul, don't worry about your spelling, it's not easy typing with a stick taped to your forehead!
You can certainly apply a matt or silk varnish over a Kleared model to tone it down. I do this as a matter of course. I don't use the Tamiya stuff so I'm not sure how it sprays.
maybe it was my lack of experience, but I did not like them personaly.
I wouldn't quite call it a doddle Scott, but bearing in mind the bf 109 was my first use of Vallejo matt varnish I was really chuffed how easy it went on...And not a little relieved too!
Onwards and upwards my friend..
do not put the flat base on by itself. if used by itself, it comes out opaque white and chalky. it's meant as a flattening agent for gloss paints. i'm not very well versed on varnishes and all that, i know that the tamiya paints i use are all acrylic based, so i'm assuming the flat base is as well. but that's just a guess.
Just a question out of interest, i've seen two bottles of Vallejo matt varnish. I have this one in the pic. Is this the one everyone is talking about? I managed to get it going through the airbrush but it's rather thick.
