Gilles Villeneuve – 1/20 GF-models driver figure – nearly there!

I eventually got some decals applied to the suit, so I’ll let them dry and give the whole thing a coat of matt varnish with the airbrush.  Once the coat of Johnsons Klear (I’ve just given to the helmet) dries, I’ll apply decals to there also.  The visor was given a “dipping” in a pot of Klear to bring up the lustre after all the filing and bending to shape it – this process is courtesy of the “Propellor heads” in my local modelling club – (they use it on aircraft canopies to great effect).  So once these are dry I can at last united them all on a display base in an appropriate setting – maybe that piece of armco I’ve been working on will come in handy!  Also, I must remember to paint a pair of gloves for this one –   more later.
