I want my Landfreeder to be a Fall Guy Look-a-Like truck. Now I know that the bed isn't the correct length, and the Landfreeder is based on a Ford, not GMC etc... But, I think I can get away with making the Landfreeder look like an early 1980's GMC truck... I started a thread in the 'Wheels and Tires' section, resulting in a set of RC4WD 1.55 wagon wheels wrapped in Desert King rubber, and I'm happy with how it looks. (Need to chrome the rims though). Moving on to paint now... No local hobby shop to pop into to have a look at the paints available, and I'm not sure about buying stuff off the web to 'try'. The colour on my screen when ordering, is not exactly like the colour that comes out of the tin/rattle can! Tamiya doesn't seem to have many options in Brown paint colours (I have no idea why!!). I have used Humbrol/Airfix paints lots before, so I have chosen to use their rattle cans. I have been buying some small 'tinlets' trying to find the correct shade of brown (with not much success!). Couple this with the limited colours available in rattle cans means I'm pretty tempted to buy an airbrush...but that would mean a whole new adventure (that I'm not ready for , just yet!) When I was painting my big yellow Sea King, I was surprised how much difference was made by the undercoat colour...I used grey on some parts, and that made the yellow almost look green! White underneath made the yellow much brighter and stronger... I have heard that the backing colour used on clear bodyshells has the same effect... I've not painted a clear body shell before, so am a little hesitant to ruin, I mean start, painting this one! I have got my rattle cans ready, but do I need to Scuff up the body before painting?
