I've tried to remove the "GWR" from the tender of my Mainline Collett Goods with meths and a cotton bud. Unfortunately all I seem to have done is remove the paint from all around the letter "G". I guess that I'll have to spray/paint over the letters if I want to put a B.R. emblem on the tender. Does anyone know of a paint that is a good match for the Mainline original, so that I don't have to respray the whole tender?20 years ago I seem to remember using Humbrol and Airfix enamel paints and it was always a pain to clean the airbrush afterwards with thinners etc.. I've been away from the hobby for nearly 20 years, have model paints moved on and are there now water soluble paints? If there are water soluble paints, are they any good and can they be painted on top of enamel paint?
