It's All White

So, I've begun the process of painting the Parry People Mover.

I've made a radical departure from my usual custom and practise and am using a white primer.

Normally I give everything a coat of grey, but the predominant colour on the PPM is white, and the last time I painted a model which was mostly white (the cherry picker wagon) I lost count of the number of coats of white paint I had to apply to get a deep and even coverage. (It was at least half a dozen.)

So hence my move to invest a vast amount of money (£8) in a can of white primer.

The idea, at least, is that I will only need to give it one top coat of white enamel.

We shall see....
