Off to cracking start the Tim, and nice to see the payload too .
What paint did you use, was it AK?
Ammo Mig was the product and Warm Sand-Yellow the colour - A MIG-061.
It does fire through the AB but is fairly thick and you suffer drying on the needle. Over did the thinning with distilled water, has a pathological hatred for X-20A thinner (gloopy mess) and finally got it to work with a little Daler-Rowney flow enhancer and a little slow drying medium. Will try and use water again but hold back on the quantity.
PS - thanks for the comments Paul & Pete - appreciated.
Tim I use the window cleaner you can get from Aldi to thin Mig paint . Just make sure it's the blue coloured one, it's also great for cleaning the AB afterwards. Also there are two different batches of Mig paints out there, the ones with the orange lid are older. These need a good 10 min stir and shake to get the paint pigments, that settle at the bottom of the jar, mixed in again. The ones with the yellow lid are newer, these don't separate as bad as the first batch, and are easier to get ready for the AB.
Thanks for the information. These are the "yellow tops" so starting from a good place. Will now endeavour to source some of the window cleaner. In truth it will be a mission for SWMBO, who I am sure will treat it as a "Mission Imposible" task, and forget the quest in 10 seconds.
Got some colour on the transporter at last, bit rough in places but with a little dusting should come up to scratch. I went with Lifecolor British Army light stone to give a contrast with the Warm Sand Yellow of the Grant which I quite like.
