    Yes that is an outstanding paint job. Would you be willing to do a tutorial on how you painted the Upholder?

    I cant see why not. My friend Alan did the paint scheme as on all my models. He uses a mixture of film industry techniques and his own experimentation. I will see what I can do. I have some photos of the build of this model and others somewhere in various stages of paint...

    I think you did a real good job on the paint work on your sub, the weathering looks very effective
    All the best John
