    Many thanks to everyone here who has been kind enough to give me some pointers,I am learning so much it's awesome.:)
    I have 2 new best friends and their names are 'Clear-coat and Micro-Sol'..:lol:
    My word,decal application is so much simpler now and no annoying silvering!
    One question for u experts though,this model is very shiny.I clear-coated before and after applying decals and once it was dry I applied a layer of Matt Varnish.End result is still very shiny.
    Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong?
    Cheers,
    Tony.

    If you used Dullcote, I've found lately it doesn't really dull anything! Looks good though!

    I used Humbrol 'Matt Varnish'.
    I don't mind the finish that much especially as my models are placed in a glass display cabinet for show.It will be a problem when I want to do a diorama though.
    Cheers,
    Tony.
