Well, the clear settled in well enough, but it is a bit glossier than I would like. It's more of a semi-matte than a flat finish. I guess it looks OK on the Kates, even though it doesn't really match the other aircraft I've done. I think I'll stick with good 'ol Testors Dullcote in the future.
I made reasonable progress on the new aircraft this weekend, getting at least the base coats on the new P-36s, F4Fs and Devastators. I need new decals for at least two of the P-36s, and I haven't done a full inventory to see if I have enough US decals for the others. I may not, so we'll see if I actually get those finished before Spartacon. I was going to start work on the Sally bombers, but I don't have any Green Stuff on hand to repair the miscast nacelle, so that's delayed for the time being.
