Hi Mike,

after I got rid of all the flux residue from soldering and the bare metal is clean from any grease or oil I am using PollyScale CP gray, light gray or white if I paint the model with acryl or Floquil light gray if I use oil based paint. it is important that the model is really clean before you put a primer or underlay on, use gloves to touch the model after cleaning and the paint will stick to it and not chip off.

cheers...

Cheers Steve

And here's me thinking you'd be using some sort of fancy etch primer!

Cheers

Mike

I love seeing how you guys put these together. I'm assuming that you solder because this is made of white metal? Or is it because it need the strength that CA can't provide? PE boxes for tanks etc are soldered for that reason obviously, so just wondering about this.
