Time to start things moving on the workbench again.
I've had a couple of Shapeways 3D prints for a long time now. The had a clean a while ago (several trips through the soncator at work in beakers of Pyroneg (a lab glassware detergent) which seems to have removed the oily support (I can't smell it anyway).

I then primed with Tamiya spray paints . Hull Red for the DF

Up close the vertical lines from the printing process are visible, and I'll have to carefully sand them out.
And a Grey for the Bedford bus.

This has odd unsmoothed areas above the wheel wells which will be challenging to get rid of.

What colour undercoat would you recommend for Midland Red top coat? Reds tend not to have good coverage and the underlying colour often shows through.
