Flat or Shiny, Part III



    First house Liberated in Europe by the Canadian forces, still standing although repaired. You can see where the holes on the gable end were filled and new wood added. BTW, the paint on the undamaged wood appears to be original! A kind of bronze green, it shows a lot of wear but is still in good shape!   

 
    Just a short post; late night at work. One final note on the flatcoat issue; to increase the durability of the PVA glue/Tamiya Flat Base overcoat, you can either add an undercoat of matt acrylic sealer or add 4 drops of Future Floor Polish (a flat acrylic would be better as this becomes less matt). Still looking for a good liquid matt acrylic sealer...
