Broke out the paint

Post by Guest on Fri Apr 16 2010, 18:40

decided to try the new paint, this is only the 1st coat to top coat so will need a rub down and another few coats, its had 3 coats of primer/undercoat.


i like the new colour! this paints much nicer to paint then the stuart green i have.

Cheers Steve
