I watched a video on You Tube: "How to Apply Humbrol Clear " a product designed to give a gloss finish to a model.
Off I went to the garage with the body colour pieces of my Land Rover. "A second coat can be applied after fifteen to thirty minutes." That first coast didn't look good. I waited as instructed. My garage is a bit cool so I put on a fan heater. I sprayed away thinking to myself "I'm getting the hang of this."
An hour later several parts had assumed banana shape. In insurance terms I had a write-off on my hands. Well thart's how you learn.
I am now awaiting replacement parts from Revell which I understand from their website will be coning from Germany, and in the words of Oates "...may be some time."
Whatever anybody wants to say about plastic modelling I must add that it is not for the faint hearted.
