    Hey,

    I'm going to be getting near to the point of painting my suit soon and was wondering what colours people in the UK are using ?

    Cheers

    Thanks Monkeeman.

    Not sure if the lighting but it looks a little too red. I think Iron Man is more of a cherry red.

    I know Fingaz is using Honda Candy Red.

    Doormanmatt, Do you have a pic of anything painted ?

    Thanks Mole.

    Cheers
    Adam

    I'm going with a hard helmet and a foam suit so I'm using Bright Red Plasti-kote on the body and will have to colour match the helmet.

    Its hard to pick a good color. All reference pics are a matter of lighting etc.even my hot toys iron man seems the wrong red and super glossy.i think you have to compromise.apparently duplicolor nissan cherry red is the closest.but not available in the uk due to another paint company with the same name selling here.
