Dale Balmer of Midland City, Alabama, finished out a kit and did a superb job! He added his own touches. I asked Dale how he got the finish and he said he applied the epoxy and cloth, then ended up sanding it out with 220 and applying oil based polyurethane, and sanding it out with 400 grit between coats. Four coats of poly total. It is a beauty, thanks for the photos Dale!
