Hi Everyone,

 

I have a great deal of trouble with paint from Model ********. The finish and colour match are great but it will not come out of the spray can. I have just ordered some more and asked for spare nozzles. I follow all the rules regarding temperature, turning the can upside down when finishing, soaking the nozzles in the correct solvant. I have just finished a code 3 and in desperation use craft and hobby enamel - no problem but it is a little to thick, OK for the job I was doing. Dinky Dublin suggests using Tamiya which I shall try. Do others in the group have this problem? Can any one recommend other brands.

There is currently no one else supplying paint, I am reliably informed that some of the car paint shops can colour match Dinky paint, and that is something you could try, it is extremely frustrating using him that shall remain nameless!! firstly how long it takes to get your order delivered and then to have troubles with the paint.

Hi we a couple of car paint shops here in Perth that computer match paint off an original sample,it mite be the best way to go although I dont know what size the spray cans come in.They are usually very very close to original ,I havnt got them to match Dinky but if they can match a car thats been faded in the sun these places would have to go close.
