Really digging the Mr Paint - have already tried the CDL and PC10 - it is very thin out of the bottle and takes several coats to build up but goes on super smooth. I really like the PC10 color as well (I know that is subjective but it looks great to me....)

my latest is my first World War One kit since i was a kid... the 1/32 Encore/Roden McCudden SE5a.

that Mr. Paint PC-10 looks like exactly a color that could have one guy swearing it's green and another swearing it's brown, and neither would be wrong, at least as far as i can tell from a photo on the internet.

also it looks like a color that could be made from "yellow ochre (40 lbs), umber (30 lbs), red ochre (40 oz), Chinese blue (25 oz for darkening) and lampblack ("few ounces" only where further darkening was required)," as far as i know the only documented official PC-10 formula.

I'll probably give it a try.

I have started buying a collection of the MRP Paints, I have heard good reports about this paint, luckily I can buy it from one of our local hobby shops, BNA Model World in Victoria.

Another delivery this morning this time the 1:32 scale Special Hobby Morane Saulnier Type N, I have built this kit before but decided to grab another one, they are getting difficult to obtain so I purchased this one from one of our forum members.

I received these two kits today, they were on special at Metro Hobbies in Melbourne so I thought it a good opportunity to grab 2 of them, postage was free so that was an added bonus.

Hi Des, nice set you purchased, do you have any info about how those paints are to be used by brush?

I can't give you an answer Antonio as I have not used the paints yet, but from what I have heard it is purely for airbrushing because it is very thin.

Another delivery this morning, this time 50 x 0.2mm tungsten carbide drill bits, very tiny but will come in useful.

Coming back from Slovenia I felt an urgent need for these...

Des,     
    Consider the Bren Gun PE Set for this Kit, it's well worth it if only for the lower nose cowling with the louvres. Although it was a reasonably challenging Build it is probably my favourite model in my collection. What scheme do you have in mind?
Cheers,
Lance
