    Bruce - Something I did a few years ago when restoring a K&O model outboard (see my Harbor for an example) was to have an auto body paint supplier color match the paint and have it loaded into a spray can. A bit expensive but if color match is a high priority and you need a lot of paint in the future, it's the way to go.

    Agreed PP ๐Ÿ‘ Primers, being mostly chalk dust or similar, are inert when all the solvent / carrier has thoroughly dried and evaporated.

    Bruce: For a variety of colours, including 'true to life' for all sorts of organisations, you'll find it hard to beat 'LifeColor'.๐Ÿ‘
    Catalogue attached. Happy browsing.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Try a large auto supply store if there's one in your area. Dupli-Color automotive paint. Their primer as a base coat works very well.

    No Halfords here rust-oleum yes in our big box lumber stores Home Depot, Loews, Auto parts stores it gets pricey. Krylon fusion here works on plastic but not to may colors. Rust-oleum is mostly Lacquer. so have to be picky about lacquer and enamel being mixed.

    I'm sure they do Pete.
    Ed (Figtree) seems to do all right with his tugs and Rust-Oleum.
    (He's a very talented guy - he also plays the linoleum - with his feet!๐Ÿ˜ฎ)
    OK OK! I was just off to hit the sack anyway๐Ÿ˜
    G'night all. Stay safe๐Ÿ‘

    Yes Doug, totally forgot about Bruce being in the good old USA,๐Ÿค“ but I would think that they have an equivalent motor spares shop that does rattle can paints.

    Cheers, Pete

    Hi All,
    Here are some more paint charts for your 'delight and edification'๐Ÿ˜

    Bruce: I think the original was more likely painted with silk matt than gloss.
    Like any other ship I've ever been on.
    IMHO Gloss paint on this sort of model tends to make them look like plastic toys๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”
    I would go for silk matt Signal Red, or Flame or Fire Red would be kinda fitting๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS: Not sure if they've got Halfords in the US of A Rooky?๐Ÿค”

    Hi Bruce, I use halfords acrylic primers for undercoats, then I use for what the boat needs, I do use Vallejo paints quite a lot, airbrushed of course,
    but for such a big area as the dusseldorf, be like Martin and choose the colour Red you like, bottle, tin or rattle can.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Cheers, Pete
