Grey vans...

The pair of DR brown LGB vans are now in grey primer after having there markings smoothed down with wet and dry paper 1200 grit used wet. No trace in the primer coat so it was worth the effort. The roofs will be black and the bodies brown with custom markings when they're finished.


  1. Looking good but what paints do you use?

  2. I use Halfords Plastic Primer - as it's formulated to be flexible on plastic. I then use Humbrol tinlets applied by airbrush for the body colour. I'll be using Halfords Satin Black in a spray can for the roofs though as it's easier. After I've applied gloss varnish where the transfers are going by hand and the transfers are on I use Humbrol Satin Varnish to seal the model and give a protective coat - applied either by airbrush or Spray Can.
