David,

How much paint did you order, I have been in touch with Holger and it comes in 0.7 ltr tins. Do you think one will be enough ?

Lee,

Do you you know where you can get larger quantities of enamel thinners from in the Uk ?

Thanks, Dennis Jones.

You might try a model shop specialising in r/c aircraft as they use them to control flaps, rudder etc.

The PZ111 build is coming on though, trying to source paint at the moment. I nearly wasn't going as it clashes with an Autojumble Classic Car event at Shepton M...

Hopefully will get there this year, with the completed (I hope by then) Panzer. Glad it's on for 2 days as we will be returning from France with the Kit Car on the 18th.
