Ah yes, they do not have a crystal ball to see what you will be doing with it

|Thread: To paint, or nor to paint.|
Jason recommended a lacquer to me back along and it is brilliant stuff.
My thoughts are a coat of that and to keep as a display item
pgk says - let's face it half the time the paint's there to cover the cock-ups. I feel that is very true. My wife says that is why some women wear make up
Were I lucky enough to have a Jason Gamages engine then the lacquer tin would be out.
