Well, I've gone and done it. $NZ 50 later...here are my first dipped figures...
...alongside a comparable before shot.
Ok, so the lighting isn't exactly the same between the two sets of shots, but it has made quite a difference on these 28s. Apparently, once the Anti Shine Varnish is applied, the effect really pops.
And, while the dip was out the 20mm Marians got a wash.
Compared with before...
...the jury's still out. The difference is far less noticeable. We'll see how they look after the anti shine, which I have to wait a further 24 hours before applying.
$NZ 50 well spent? Well, it will take me ages to get through the can, and it should protect the 20mms from flaking, and I can alway highlight atop this stain if I want to...though that does take more time, the main selling point of this stuff being that it's designed for speed painting, so...we'll see.
