Hi I wondered if anyone could help? Thinking of getting a Speedline models 1/12 scale Severn lifeboat. What paint would you recommend? Thank you in advance.

Hi Falmouth.

I have been using Halfords car spray cans and provided you prepare the surface well, the results are more than satisfactory.
The cans are not too expensive and I use a wax car polish to enhance the finish.
Here's one I prepared earlier. Volkswagen brilliant orange and gloss black.

Hope this helps.

Steve
