Hi Damien,
If you mix talcum powder with dope to the consistency of clag you will fill grain.Three or four coats of dope and a light sand between coats should do the trick.

  The odd thing about the LCT6 was that it had a loading ramp, or at least a gate, in the stern as well as the bow, the first real RoRo perhaps. I've never been able to find any photos of the rear ramp in use, so have no idea how it worked. But I bet DickyD can be relied on to find some.

  Must be easier than trying to reverse a tank on, though.

Sorry Jonty I missed this.

Peter I tend to use the polyfiller term to cover all types I checked and i actually use a premix Bostik light filler it dries quickly and so easy to sand, i usually seal it with dope then use auto primer/putty i plan to use this grey as the main colour followed by Cabothane satin clear polyurethane as the finish for above water and gloss black again with the satin clear as the top coat.

Graham thanks for the tip when i run out of filler i'll give talc a whirl.

Camoflage finished final coat of polyurathane satin clear this afternoon.





After the clear dries i'll fit the motors, rudders and start the detailing.
