Thanks, the secret behind the sharpness of the painting is that the blue stripe along the topside is blue-sprayed masking take stuck on! The junction between white and green, lower down is a white strip stuck over the junction!

Your work is very impressive Bob, As a plastic builder ( hope to get into wood asap) I have to ask are your ships scratched or kits ?
