Okay chaps, the temperature is around 25°, but at least I can spray with that .
I masked off the aluminium metal colour with VMS Liquid Mask (rapid) . After I let this stuff dry for about an hour, I got the Tamiya JN Green (XF11) out, thinned it down a tad and sprayed over the spiderweb masking . I gave this a quick blast with a hairdryer and left it alone for about 20mins, after which I removed the masking to reveal something quite extraordinary .
I have a little tidying up to do, and then I'll be onto the decals
