Hopefully it will turn out as I planned!

Tonight I sprayed grey from a new bottle of paint and I am a little unhappy. I used the same brand (Testors) but it looks like the new supply is quite a bit darker than the several year old bottle I started with. Perhaps I'll have to respray everything that is already finished, but this is a good time to find the problem rather than later!

Tonight was the final primer day for this one. Several small areas needed repriming and the left door was sanded and grey primer sprayed over the red oxide from twenty years ago. I've also mixed my paint to the correct shade and resprayed some parts to match the original paint. After all paint was dry I fitted the interior parts one last time and made some tiny corrections. Next step will be to spray the exterior of the body.

This grey primer look's like military color (in this stage)

That is the grey primer I always have used, and it is a good duplicate for some military grey colors! It is marketed through NAPA auto part stores here in the U.S. The nice thing is that I can also use it on Ingrid when I start the body work on the 1/1 car.
