    Hey Alex

    I just started, as a novice arsenal model builder, the construction of this little vessel. l love the finish, the painting, of the hull of your bateau de Lanveoc. How did you manage that, did you use an acrylic paint?

      Sorry for the late answer.
      The back paint is diluted acrylic paint applied with a brush. Once dried I sanded it lightly with steel wool to give it an “aged” or “used” look.
      Hope this helps you.
