  1. This looks great, Dan!

    A bit shiny for my tastes, but that is likely the lighting. I don’t yet have the guts to try a NMF regardless of the tools, but this build is a great motivator.

    1. This model doesn’t have any clearcoat over the Metal Color. I did an experiment with some Future (gloss) and it didn’t completely kill the sheen but it did dull it a little. The key thing to keep in mind is that the actual aircraft had a shiny aluminum skin with markings painted on in a mix of gloss and flat paints, and I think the model should reflect that, if possible. I do tend to “flatten” everything on most models just because a flat coat removes all “blemishes.” But that would be a bad thing to do to the metal finish.
