I am trying to find a decent sized spray can of Matt Grey (Equivalent to the Humbrol No. 67 Matt Grey)
All the Humbrol cans seem to be 150ml and instead of buying 3 or 4 of these it would be more cost effective to obtain a couple of 300ml cans.
Has anyone an idea if an equivalent is available?

That is quite a dark shade and I doubt if you will find an alternative to the Humbrol spray. I imagine that some people would be using the tinlets and airbrushing. An alternative might be to see if you can find a Halfords car spray of the right colour. But then you would probably need to precede it with grey primer and then add a matt/satin varnish afterwards so it might be even more expensive in total!

Hi Ian.
We have a local vehicle paint supplier in our area and they will mix any colour you want in 500ml aerosols and they really do spray well. You might ring round your area and find one local to you.

Thank you for the information regarding the paint spray.
I don't have an airbrush so will try and find the nearest Halfords have to the Humbrol colour.
I believe there is a local paint supplier who will mix paint in a spray can, so I will try them.
If all fails then it will have to be the 150ml Humbrol cans.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
