    Hi does anyone know where to get paint from? If I recall it's currently nato green and black. Last time, we got tins from Anchor supplies but I'm not sure they stock it anymore

    I have this link saved in my favourites for when I do mine.
    It’s been on the to do list for about 3 years now!

    Maybe worth trying PA Blanchard too.....

    Or Paintman.

    Hope this helps!

    Did you brush it on, roller or spray.
    I’d never heard of Arc rite until you posted that link.
    I see it uses xylene thinners.....does this pose any problem?
    One last question - does it need thinning to be applied with a roller?

    I ask for myself but it may help the OP too.....

    Also look for the color OD Green. That's another NATO color we used to use in the military.

    I spray painted my Land Rover (1 panel at a time), I did thin it down slightly, the xylene thinners didn't cause any problems, it dries quite quickly.
