Re: Paint Formula for CNW Gondola

Elden and Gary,

I like the suggestion of spraying a test shot on styrene. However, I suggest first spraying the styrene with neutral gray primer, and using the same primer on the model itself. White styrene and whatever material used for your model (often black or oxide red plastic) will probably come out a different shade unless both are primed.

I discovered this when I made up test shots of various oxide red paints on blank white styrene cards. The paint never looks quite the same on my models.

Kind regards,

Garth G. Groff

compare it to the photo to get it the way YOU think it should look, as so
many people's color perception is not the same.
