One of my most productive years in years! I guess pandemics are good for staying home and sitting at the bench!

Wayne- thanks for your kind words. I use Minwax Polyurethane clear gloss. I shoot it through my airbrush. The advantage to this clear enamel is that it won't craze decals as many lacquers will and since it's enamel it can be applied over any paints. It is 'self-leveling' and lays down real smooth. I'm told it can take a buff and polish, but I never do that so I don't have any first-hand knowledge of that. The disadvantage is that it will never get as hard as lacquer will, so one has to be careful handling your parts once they're dry. I clamped parts together once cleared and the clamp left marks. Just be careful. A 1/2 pint can is about $6.00 at Lowes. I don't think Home Depot carries it. -RRR

They're all beautifully done as usual Rodney !  The Salinas Special really grabs my attention , clean lines and simplicity at it's best . How did I miss this one !?!

Edit : Just looked back and found your original post on the Salinas Special . . . nice !

Love the green on "Mr.Speed", but all look really good. Excellent model building. Hows about posting links to the WIP threads when you post several pieces like this? Not just you, I think it would be a good idea in general!
