the sheer volume of ships you manage to do at one time is mind-boggling. Good stuff as always

Started work on the Abbe class, USS Jungjareon... I’m trying something new (for me)... The print has very little detail in the saucer itself so no panel lines or anything like that, so I thought I would try and use my own printed versions of the 1/1000 scale decals So they’re a little rough and I’m still working on them but check this out:

I am hoping, and expecting that once I hit it with the mat overcoat later that the glass affect will no longer be there.

You know that's exactly what I do with my 1400 scale decals! And yes they'll loose that wet look. Won't even have to dullcoat to get them to do it, just give them a few days. Only think I'm worried about with the printed kits like yours is excessive silvering from microbubbles under the print lines. Let us know how it comes out!
