    The older dullcoat gets the less matte it becomes. As witnessed by my captain and mate. Another go is in the offing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1/24th is about G scale. Did you check that out?
    On another note, figures with a glossy finish... has anyone had success in real dulling down the finish? I use matte (flat) paints and even Testors "Dullcote" but still have some gloss. Not so much as in person but in close-up photos.

    Roy - my last post was from DiecastModelsWholesale.com. Postage on your whole order is the same as postage for one item. If you find several things you want it helps the cost.

    Take no notice of this
    Hi
    I think that Luis is the same guy that is Panzer vs tanks on Shapways.
    Fred
    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    More on Luis...
    Attached is his Shapeways page.

    As for the pix, the captain and mate in the middle are 1:24 scale while the other two pix are USCG crew (rough painted and unpainted) are 1:16th, both sets are by Luis.

    Chris: You should definitely try Luis. He is my go-to guy. He works in all scales and has not let me down.
    I will send along his Shapeways page in a bit. But, here is his FB page. Message him through there. He is in Spain, but I have had no issue with turnover times or shipping. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Peejay it is the postage US to UK that is the killer.
    I wanted a printed OO gauge gear wheel from Shapeways and the postage was more than the item and added together I could buy a chassis for the same money.

    This might be your C/O: Do a search on American Diorama for other sailor figures.

    Just checked my IngaIV and figures about 2.5 - 3 inches high would suit, about 1 : 24th scale.

    Hi Chris, hello to all ship modelers.

    I didn't ask you what scale your Inga IV model was in because I imagined you wrote it in the build section.
    I reread it but I don't think it's written anywhere, sorry if it's there and I missed it.
    I tried looking for the dimensions of an original model to do the calculation but I couldn't find anything.
