I have recently finished an Aeronaut Pilot Boat using a Halfords aerosol spray - VW Brilliant Orange, the colour recommended by a fellow modeller. It gave excellent results for a very modest price. I am now building a 49" Perkasa and am looking to use the same type of paint. Can anyone help with the corresponding shade of sea grey used on this type of boat please? Steve
I thought I had better be the first to reply to my own post before you all realised what little research I had done beforehand! I have answered my own question. Searching the Halfords website I find that they do in fact make an aerosol "Sea Grey" which on further investigation has already been used on a Perkasa. They also supply a touch up bottle for detail on the deckhouse. As an old schoolfriend continually likes to remind me - "If all else fails, read the instructions!" How I rose to the dizzy heights of Commander I will never know. Steve
