 Needs a good primer like Halfords grey etch.

 

Interesting observation, Jonathan. Was it the older red material that you found needing a primer, or the current grey? The older red material certainly needed priming before painting and a good dousing in isopropyl alcohol before that. I have not yet found the need to prime the recent grey material, though, but I am painting figures rather than architectural components.

 

Sorry, Al, wandering off topic a bit. . . . . . . . . . . .

Not at all Mick, thank you for the information. I've only ever dealt with Modelu items in the red material, so what you say is interesting.

I've also added the ridge tiles to the house, and the lead flashing round the chimneys and the porch roof:

Thanks for looking.
