    Hi SImon, I love your resto's they look really great!!! Got a couple of questions If I may ask? the first is what is the colour code on this green WW? I'm assuming its not Olive Drab 2? The WW in my old catalogue is this sort of colour and I'm desperate to find out what it is!!!  Secondly do you spray the plastic Chassis members, suspension arms etc? if so do you just use ordinary matt black/ acrylic type aerosol.  I tried it on an old F2 type chassis and it came up really well but was a bit worried if the paint would attack the plastic at all??!! Just wondered if you had any issues with this? many thanks and best wishes Barry

      Hi Barry - I usually make a detailed description of the model in my showroom, including color used etc. The WW in the picture was prayed with TS5 Olive Drab. The TS28 Olive Drab 2 is a bit darker, and I have used it for several WW builds also, check out my showroom.
      Regarding spraying the chassis parts, I do not do that for the WWs, but I have done this for various other models, like Sand Scorcjer, Sand Sover etc... The WW chassis parts are all cast in black, so not really needed if you ask me, but I do spray the roll bar in matt black, also I spray the underside of bodies matt black.

      I use Tamiya spray for pretty much all my models. 

      Cheers,
      Simen

      Hi Simon, that's great, thank you so much for taking the time to reply, much appreciated! I'm afraid I'm no good with navigating this website, I just find it really confusing and can never seem to get where I want to be on it unless I do a google search first!!! Cheers very much and keep up the resto's!, B

      Yeah, it has gotten less intuitive to navigate lately, so I understand where you're coming from. I spend less time here lately, but drop by from time to time. It's always great to exchange info with other enthusiasts, so only happy to share. Here is a link to my showroom with some of my models with more detailed info as mentioned earlier.
