    Hi George.

    Love the Bulleid locos! Really smart looking.

    I was interested to see you used a RailMatch spray when painting your diesel loco. I tend to use Halfords spray where I can as I don't get on with airbrushes. Just wondering how easy/hard you found the RailMatch spray to use.

    Hello Mike, l usually use my airbrush with Railmatch paint, but bought the can a while back and thought l might use it on the 31, it took the whole can to cover in about three coats waiting about five minutes between coats, theres not a lot of paint in the can, Regards George..
