Apart from a bit of finishing off and also a bit of weathering, the Mini job has nearly been finished:

Many thanks :)
However, all of these are far too small for me, and even after being on the forum for 2 years, I am still trying to learn from all the excellent modellers :) :)

GrantJ wrote:Paul as a general rule when I am painting a car or a high gloss finish I always use a white primer. If i am painting a military model with camo then I use grey primer.

Painting red over a grey primer tends to leave the red slightly darker than the intended colour. :)

Final tip - never ever buy cheap paint - not worth saving a few pennies and messing up an expensive model :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi Grant,
I've subsequently used the same red spray, without any primer on a wooden model, and it's fine on that :)
