Making a green choice

Load out building sprayed green

Choosing the right green for the quarry buildings

After a couple of false starts I have finally found a green I am happy with, for the load out building. In fact, the same green will be used for all of the major quarry buildings. My first attempt was a test sample of hand brushed Tamiya acrylic on a rear wall, but I wasn’t happy with either the coverage or the colour.

I really wanted to spray the finished colour if I could. Next I tried a Plasti-Kote green which was closer to the finish I wanted, but not the colour. In the end, I found a Humbrol spray paint which was exactly what I was looking for.

More painting and weathering to do yet but, I hope you agree, it’s beginning to look the part.
