    Do we have any Warhammer or A N Other model painters on here, i need a favour

    Is there anyone here who paints models and things like that? I'm talking on a small scale, which is why Warhammer sprung to mind.

    I have a VERY unsteady hand and very little patience, and need some precision painting doing.

    I've taken my metal spark plug cover from my Redtop to the powdercoaters today. He's gonna bead blast it and coat it gloss black. What i want to do then is paint the lettering in red, so it would need outlining first and then filling in. This is why i thought model painting would be the best thing to adapt to it.

    Can anyone help please?

    I prob should have mentioned, theat the lettering is quite prominently embossed from the back ground. The edges might be a bit smoother and more rounded after it has been powdercoated but it should make it a bit easier than if it were all flat

    I have done things like in the past and build and paint models.

    I would offer but depends how quick you want it back.

    Ive got 3 projects on the go atm one as to be finished by January but as im also starting with the Top Fuel drag racing team in January so a lot of my spare time is spoken for.

    The offers there if your not in a rush

    if you get some thin masking tape you would be able to mask around the letters (make sure you get the tape in place properly) then just paint over it
