Painted the chassis
20 April 2002 by Kerry
tiger I spent about four hours today painting the chassis with smooth finish Hammerite (after cleaning it all with thinners, which took another hour). Suddenly not paying the extra £110 for powder coating seems like a false economy.

OK, it's hardly impressive progress with the build, but at least I've finally made a start (only four months after picking up the kit).

I supported the chassis on a pair of plastic saw horses from Homebase. They look a bit flimsy, but seem to happily support the weight. Obviously this means I had to miss a bit of paint where it's sitting on the horses, but I'll touch that up when I turn it over.
