    Thanks all. Special thanks to Mark (Gothic Geek) as well.
    The snow is simply Matt Varnish with Microballoons sprinkled on top.

    Thanks all for the replies. Hopefully one day I'll figure out how to take photos!

    If anyone wants me to send them a copy of Marks e-mail with the chevrons (fantastic!) send me a PM.

    I went down to the UPS store and had the chevrons copied onto a sheet of decal paper and then printed. Once I trimmed them and used MicroSol and Microset, they only needed a spray of dullcoat to protect them. I then gave a quick overspray with the base colour to tone them down. I think they came out pretty good.

    Thanks again, ;)

    Looks good Gary. From the photos he has the cold look and also from here the chevrons look the dogs swingers.
