I've got a Bachmann Spectrum Fairbanks Morse H16-44 Deisel (Pennsyvania #8815, black) which I picked up new, on special at my dealer. Just a fabby little runner and smooth and quiet to boot! I'm attempting to do it over in the V/Line (grey and orange) livery and decals. You've proably seen this livery on pics of Garahbara. I'm using the Humbrol grey, and Floquil Reefer Orange. The Humbrol Grey is OK, but the Floquil will not stick to the casing. Yep. I've given it a good shake and complete stir to mix the paint properly. I've used the Floquil Orange on other stock/kits with no probs at all. It's a bit thin, but 3 coats were fine on the other stock/kits. The way I'm going, I'm going to have to give it 20 - 30 coats to get any sorta coverage. Even a recoat after 24 hours, just "dissolves" and wipes off the previous coat. I've given it a coat of Floquil Zinc Chromate Primer, still to no avail. I'm using a brush (no air gun). I've now given it a spray with Testors Dullcoate to see if that makes a difference, and I'll try again tomorrow night. Any ideas or help on this one? Thanks guys.
