    Self etching primer is usually a good move to get a decent base for painting on almost all metals and some hard plastics/resin, used it meself on more than one occasion but with bloody good ventilation!.
    Halfords is deffo a UK thing. I think Septone is an auto paint brand out in Australia isn’t it? I recall the name from way back.

    Anyhow, since the hull plates are ABS then I would think any brand of auto aerosol paint primer would do. Personally, I tend to steer clear of the ‘plastic’ types of auto primer as they are just not as reliable in my experience. I know not about elsewhere on this planet but the ones I’ve used are just not that good and can be finicky if the surface is not almost surgically clean.

    The above may not be much help but haven’t visited the land down under for over two decades 🙁

    @Ian Lawrence ,

    I was wondering how many weeks it had been since the last delivery!
    Nothing yet for me either.
    Hopefully it will turn up soon, and hopefully with the next binder that was out of stock a couple of deliveries ago!!

    Finally, the website says issues 79-81 despatched today (26th)
    Wonder if its only 3 issues this month?

    Just got home and had issue 78 and 79 waiting for me with a note saying that they were unable to send 4 issues this time because they were short delivered stock but the other issues are on back order and they should arrive by the end of November. I guess I cant complain too much, this is the first delay I’ve had with my subscription.
