Model engineering - improved paint finish Printer Friendly Page Technical | Prices
Model engineering projects are often let down by the quality of the paint finish. Well, help is at hand!

The author spent six years building a 7 1/4" gauge model of a locomotive which went on to win a Gold Medal for best finish at the 2004 Model Engineer Exhibition. This success and the lack of published help inspired him to write this work as a guide to others.

Includes details of selection and making of equipment, paint, preparation, spray and hand painting, fixing blemishes, lining, transfers, tips on how to look after the paintwork and a list of suppliers.

Title:How (not) to paint a locomotive
