Quote from: scotland yard on Dec 30, 2020, 07:53 pmI can wait to put the paint on.I wasn't looking for an accurate paint job. At least that's what I thought. Because I have read a lot in here about matching paint, and so I thought that I'd just look for a close enough blue because if I were looking for total perfection, I'd never find it and I'd never be happy with the model. But when I got to the shop, I rejected each an every single shade of blue they had in offer. It turns out I was looking for a an accurate paint job!In the end I settled for a shade of blue. The paint itself looks very season 11, but they had this bit of wood that was allegedly painted with the shade I chose. It had darkened and gained some greyness, not quite but close enough to the colour pictures from "The Abominable Snowmen". I don't trust much these samples of already dried paint, but I thought, just in case, I'd give it a go.But even if the paint does end up looking as the sample in the shop, I'm thinking of getting some other blues and trying to give it that patchy and that "The stagehands keep abusing the prop and we need to repaint some bits of it with whatever blue we have handy" look we all know and love!
