VOLVO FH16

Postby LiamD » Thu Dec 22, 2016 2:07 pm

This where I am at the moment, used some Halfords enamel aerosols I had lying around on the chassis, bit light according to the colour on the tin. Have bought some tamiya paints now and will use these going forward. Image Image Image

Did some more work on this one during the week and did some priming on this also this morning. There are 2 or 3 coats on the cab, put isn't pure white yet so i assume more primer coats will sort this. Plenty of assembly left to do yet.

WARNING/TIP for furure use,red plastic will bleed like a stuck pig so prime it with black,then grey followed by your topcoat.
You will find over a few years that the red bleeds through the plastic and taints the white....
