I am busy building the Bluenose by Amati. I'm new to ship modelling and are gettting all the tools ect as the need arises. So, here is the thing; Im looking ahead at the painting on the bluenose and all the accents. Now I know the hull to be black, white and red, however, Im not sure on what type (Acrylic or Enamel), what shades of the colors to use and should I use Matt or Gloss?
Does the wood need to be primed before it can be painted?
If anyone has built this model before (as many has) could you please advise on what paints was used ect. I want this model to look as close to the original as possible.
Thanking everybody in advance for their help and advice.
