I got up early this morning to get a some varnish on my Lutzowers.
I really like the gloss finish as this reflects the light making the colours pop even on these black uniformed Lutzowers.
The photos below show the glossed figure and the unvarnished matt finish. I know which one I prefer.
In other news I visited my local model railway shop, Frizzinghall Models and Railways, which has recently moved to Baildon.
I came away with a Dapol Cottage as every gamer should have one. My old Airfix version had disappeared many years ago.
The shop also sells a wide range of bits and pieces including some thin plasti card. I bought some to see if I could make some replacement bayonets.
I have tried making a replacement bayonet as a trial run. I hope that the mixture of super glue and pva will provide a strong enough bond. If not I may have to try the old classic glue - Araldite.
The bayonet looks OK the test figure on the left and compares well with the original on the figure on the right. I will do a stress test later today.
