    Thank you very much Marc. I've just had a look back at my v-bench and it was October 2012 when I first experimented with a oils, so discounting my time spent at sea it has taken me just over a year to get this far with them. Obviously there is room for improvement, there always is but I'm pleased I decided to give oils a go.

    Your persistence at mastering the oils is paying off. This is a sharp looking gentleman!

    Thanks Joe, I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it now, my main problem was not thinning them enough and impatience. :confused:

    Nicely done, Roger! Reading your comment about your start with oils, I was surprised that you'd only been at them since 2012. You've really gotten a nice technique developed, I'd have thought you'd been using them longer.

    Prost!

    Thanks Brad. I only bought a couple of tubes to see if I could get a nice smooth finish when painting armour and look what's happened. :D
