Looking good, with such a dark color, did the marbling had any effect? hard to see on the pics...

Hi guys - Bart and Holger... the marbling would've worked had i not sprayed the last couple coats! I'm new to the whole marbling thing, and my reasoning was "if i marble the black and weather on top it should look like a sub on drydock) which i think i'm on to something BUT the key is getting the marbling to work... new to airbrushing so still struggling to get even coats and thin paint without it running. i would recommend anyone with more experience to try this for their boats - i feel it will help give it a subtle worn look.
