Mr. Kasey. I was attempting to do what my son says never to try in public. I was attempting to make a joke about you using 'Gentlemen' as the opening line, and Ms. Millatt was the only New Haven RR modeler who is a woman and published that I could recall. I even used one of those smiley thingees that looked like it was thinking hard to make sure you understood it was meant in jest. My attempted joke was that all the women modelers already knew about the Tamiya primer and you were attempting to inform the rest of us of it, or you were just being polite. I really do appreciate you sharing the Tamiya primer information as I have used their regular spray paints and they bonded to the clear plastic body shells of the RC cars as if it was molded into the plastic. I never thought about their primer, and since you like the way it worked on both plastic and metal I will be getting some. I think I will make paint chip cards to go into my New Haven Color Guide with the three different primers and then spray the various manufacturers New Haven RR colors on the chip. After labeling them, I can place them in the book and compare the colors in the different lights the way Mr. Statkowski mentioned for the best match I want on my models. I know from Mr. Fellows that if I will be using Microscale McGinnis scheme decals I need to use the Badger NH Red-Orange. And, I will check for Tamiya primer in silver to try Mr. NHJJ4's recommendation for the thinness of the coat of paint. I'm pretty sure I got more out of this thread than Mr. High.
Now poor Mr. Derek has to make his comparison of how the paints appear based on their couleur/colour once they cross the border.
