    Thanks for that idea Glenderg I"ll give it a go! i must admit to using the weathering powder before sealing the finish. Even tried a bit of abrasion with the fiberglass pen which did not work! Thats when I got into the "thats as good as it gets attitude!" But will try the light overspray with some light grey.

    I missed this! Truly excellent model, right shade of grey and very realistic weathering. Superb.

    I have been working on the SSM model and am near to finished. Has anyone run these models, I am not sure if it has enough weight. It's my first brass kit and I used supper-glue to build it. Should I add a weight inside the van?
    The models above are superb, and great encouragement for us with less experience.

    one thing I would add to the list when using a glassfibre brush is a pair of fine neoprene car mechanics disposable gloves, it stops the glassfibre getting into the skin (you normally get 50 pairs to the box) DIY chains do them if you can't find them anywhere else.
