Lovely work. I agree with the others about the shine. It looks like the studio's sprinkler system went off... Adding a coat of clear flat will make her perfect. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

My sis-in-law was over tonight,I told her about Dull Cote.I think I'll just pick it up for her.I told her it was a bit too glossy.I showed her my Three Stooges model,I sprayed it with a flat matte lacquer,looks good.She said she liked the flat better than the gloss.

Very nice job, particularly for a newbie. And I am in total agreement about it desperately needing a spray of Dull Cote. You can pick it up at Michael's if you have one nearby for 40% off if you go to their website and print the coupon. Michael's doesn't have too much in the way of hobby supplies but I get almost all my Dull Cote there.

This is beautiful work! The wood grain is very realistic as well as the stone's in the wall. Excellent choice of colors on the figures, and the shading is perfect! Outstanding job for a first time, very well done! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

If sister-in-law now agrees a dull finish is better, then this is very promising. You should run a poll, WLRay: 'What kit would you like my sister-in-law to build next?'!

Hey! This is my first post here! I would agree that Sis did a great job on her Bride kit! This kit is what has gotten me interested in modeling again. It's a gem!

There are two elements of her paint job that caught my eye, the addition of the tan colors in the stone wall was very nice and very subtle AND what did she use for the bottles and the beakers? I really like the liquid look of the colors she used. Could you ask her for us? Could we even see a closer picture of the wall and beakers?

And while she is being urged to use Dull Cote --- and I agree and prefer a matte finish --- will the Dull Cote have an adverse effect on the clear parts? I can't recall ever using it on a kit that had clear parts.

But, again, well done!
