Ahoy Mac!

While you're there, what colour for your BRM? I'm building it next.... not sure which archive photo matches best. Any tips?

Thanks for some really great shells.....

I like the TR4 in your picture 1950,

I had 1/1 one with a balanced engine when I meet my wife (I think it was the only reason she when out with me) and I have alway wanted a really nice slot one. I have an Airfix one but it not very good and the chassis was used to help build the Slot Classis Morgan rail car.

I like a really detail one, modelled on one of the Team Truimph Rally cars.

hi howmet tx the BRM mk1 and 1a was painted in that horrid pale green, they went dark green in53 with the mk 2, the lighter shade was used again by british racing partnerships with the P25 driven by s moss in the mid 50,s. if you go to mark gussin,s site, the first shot of the BRM is the correct shade, the other is too dark.i get my paint mixed by a car finishing coy that make up paints in spray cans to your own spec, i takle in a picture and they match it for me, have a look in yellow pages, sort out a car sprayers, you will find a lot of these people are doing the spray can thing now. some of the "off the shelf" spay cans are near, you can adjust the final shade by a light or dark undercoat, hpoe this helps, kind regards mac p

I think you will find Humbrol #1 to be a pretty close match to the Light BRM green.

Hi

Actually, the money pinching Moss senior used surplus RAF WW2 spitfire paint for their cars called "Duck Egg Green". Which means you can get it at any hobby shop carrying WW2 paint matches.
