That’s funny, I have had the same problem. At the moment I have been viewing the site through Safari it’s a pity but I love the site

Spraying/hand painting by Peter581 Petty Officer   Posted: 11 months ago
Perhaps you have answered the question your self, wet and dry and after a couple of coats you should find it smooth and without blemish. This is the time to ensure there is no dust around. A good idea is to try and make a shelter around the boat and wet it before giving it the final cost of a good quality gloss paint. It really is just a matter of perseverance and you should have a great finish. Good luck! Peter581

Can anyone help with any information about the liner France. I am interested in starting a long term project and have had an interest in this ship. I have searched for A plan and description of this ship without success. Any information would be greatly appreciated Many thanks Peter581
