Some might remember that I made a 1/12th scale Whim a couple of years ago and put a photo of it with a small log hung under it. Well I eventually had time to make another much larger log and finished it yesterday. This one sure does look like it's a lot heavier than the previous rather small log.

I really love your precise and clean models, so please excuse me uttering my honest opinion about the log: It looks so unrealistic that it completely destroys the otherwise fantastic model's impression.

I'm afraid I agree with Volker. The model is utterly superb, as are all your others. The log? Well, maybe you could go outside, find a branch with suitable bark of about the right diameter, cut off a chunk, and replace the shiny new log with it .... -- Russ

OK, needed that honest appraisal, so it looks like I need some MATT paint to kill that bit of shiny on the log, any recommendations for a really FLAT enamel that will do the job properly?

A group here has been having this debate of late.  Dullcoat is the classic, but the Army Painter and Alclad matt clear products seem to get the best reports.

I like the new log!  It gives the piece a bit of mysterious feeling.
