  1. Hi Vaddoc! Thanks very much for your advice. I will investigate the sanding sealer option. Do you have brand you would recommend? When you say 'paint with enamel and low odour mineral spirit' I guess you are suggesting I thin my Humbrol enamel before applying? What is the reason for this and what ratio should I thin to? On a side note, do you apply a coat of polyurethane or varnish over top of the painted and unpainted wood on your models as a final, protective layer? Many thanks, Peter Ottawa, Canada
  2. Hi there, I am considering applying a Humbrol enamel paint over a coat of Vallejo Polyurethane Varnish Matt. The varnish would be applied to my wood planking as a sealer before adding the paint. Both product would be brushed on. Does anyone have any experience with this combination? Is it OK to apply enamel paint over the acrylic product? Many thanks, Peter
  3. Really appreciate all the great ideas on this. I’m going to do some testing to see what works best. Thanks again!
  4. Hello fellow builders. I have just completed the second planking on my HMS Flirt (Standard Edition). While I am reasonably pleased with the outcome, it is not perfect as there are small cracks between some of the planks. Can anyone recommend a good wood filler that would help address these imperfections? One consideration is how it will look on the unpainted areas - I'd like the colour to match closely the pearwood. Many thanks in advance for your advice. Peter Halpenny Ottawa, Canada
