Here's Steve Traill's and my Kit 1 & 2 assembled and put next to each other. Steve is doing the crane version which has slightly wider fronts wheels and double tyres.

Thought you may like to see what i got upto tonight while the Mrs was out.....cheers

The fish tails take ages but i'm pleased with the finish so far.
They need a little attention but i'll do that when they are dry.

Looks good so far. How are you acheiving those "fish tales"? Tape ? Brush ? or a mixture.

paint colour

Post  greystones on Thu 01 Apr 2010, 12:31 am

Hi Kieth

The blue is RAL 5002 Ultramarine Blau

The Yellow is BS0003 Golden Yellow

They are both from colour charts with the numbers shown

I get them from a local vehicle paint supplier who mixes them for me.

I pay 15.17 a litre an mix them with 10% white spirit for spraying. They are on top of Tetrosil self etch primer which is mixed at 50/50

I painted both the Foden and MK 1 Burrell with the same paint and find it to be very durable.

As a thght arsed Yorkshireman I don't like the price of some of the other propriaty paints. I find this is as good if not better.

If you want the name of the firm which supplies me let me know.

Hope this helps Cheers Mike



Hope this helps

it's always nice to see the parts getting painted Cool

we very rarely get our control models into paint and most of them end up looking rusty and dirty. i always thought it would be good to polish and treat them in some way so people can see all the different materials used.

looking forward to seeing the first finished tender Cool Cool
