Hi every one, A friend of mine has just about completed the Tender for a 7.25" Gauge King Loco. The question he has asked is does it require any special treatment before painting e.g. etching etc. to prevent the paint peeling of later, and what type of paint is recommended. Are their any special precautions he should take before painting it. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Don (Nelson. East Lancs) MODEL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION LIST.
