because i wasnt happy with the wood color to dark i have didt a second try with a lighter base coat

Learn from the first atempt i ended with this result

Its just a trial because the wood in the pics are still lighter than this but i can live with it.

Mark,

 The big Merlins are looking better and better. It's really hard to believe that there are still some 40 more parts to go before each one is complete.

iff you are not happy with the result you can whip it off with the paper and start over again.

 

rememberoil paints dry slowly so about 24 hours the are dry

 

i hope you have sommthing on this
