Humbrol Metal Cote Paint and an M.S.V. Respray!

Si's Soldiers

I managed to pickup a can of of the above paint in a polished steel colour (probably better to call it brushed steel!)

I didn’t want the surface of the Maximum Security Vehicle (MSV) to be quite as shiny and reflective as a mirror…like say a P51 Mustang or Sabre jet fighter which is shiny aluminium.

The dulled metal effect was all i needed.

I repainted the MSV as i wasn’t entirely happy with the original paint job, (which was a silver carpaint over primer paint….and a black wash on top.)

The Paint

really strange going on, it has more in common with a fire extinguisher…the dry powder one for electrical fires!…it seems to go on very dry…and then quickly dries to a powdery black sooty effect.

I waited the recommended 30 minutes, took it inside, and buffed with cloth for around 20 mintes until i was happy with it.
