I didn't know port came in any other colour   ;D

#1 son is a nautical buff, so I've started on this one for his shelf. No whiffery involved.

Here's what I use as a mat on my modeling desk. One of the clients our courier company has is Habasit, a manufacturer and distributor of various belting materials. This is a scrap piece of conveyor belt that was liberated from their garbage bin. Tough as a bear, it will no doubt outlast me.

Tamiya Fine White Primer, you can't kill this stuff! I think most of us already know how awesome this paint is, but it's strength is something new to me. A few minutes ago I needed to remove the paint from a couple of wings, so I scrubbed it with an old toothbrush dipped in brake fluid. Came off in no time, revealing the primer underneath, which wasn't touched. If anything it looks harder, with an interesting sheen to it; not quite gloss, not quite semi-gloss. Indestructible.

Hard enough trying to gouge the belting material. That stuff is tough.
