I dont suppose this is an easy question to answer but I will ask anyway......

After cleaning up the P4 shell (see earlier topic) I will want to give it a coat of paint.

I went to the local model shop to see if they had a Tamiya Italian Red but he doesnt stock Tamiya spray cans. He recommended using a Halfords acryllic paint so I have just been there and was met by an array of different Ford/Vauxhall/Fiat/Volvo etc, etc, reds but I found it very difficult to imagine which one would be a closest match to an Italian or Ferrari red.

Do any of you chaps have experience with matching up Halfords paints ?

Hope someone out there knows !!!

Try Ford Rosso Red, the colour used on all those Mk2 XR2s (like the one I had... ah, happy days...). Just a bit darker than 'primary colour red'

For my first Ferrari attempts I used Ford Rosso red, but I actually found it a bit dark - I always use Vauxhall Flame red these days....
