It's a dark green polyester based resin - the Czechs used to use similar stuff.  It's ok, just nowhere near as nice as the polyurethane resin that threst of the casting industry uses these days.  Well, apart from Unicraft, who would rather use paint tinted fibreglass cack.

I was only looking at a photo of the 20mm cannon on the Hurricane fabric wing the other day and trying to work out how to do it - now I don't  :bow:
