...at this stage the 'Fiddler' has had a gloss varnish coat applied; decals* added; gloss varnished once again and then a coat of satin varnish. I've also started on 'shadow' lining to emphasise the detail. I had the light a little too close and 'bleached out' the top of the mech so the decals are not particularly clear here. I also in exclicabley missed the remnants of a casting plug at the rear of the right leg and after removing the residue have been left with a small patch to repaint.
* Oh...and I've somehow managed to put the numbers on the 'thigh' armour upside down!!! Another senior moment! Bollocks!
