    Paint is quite easy, try halfords, but use primer first, they even do a plastic primer.

    Is it a box trailer then?

    yep forgot to mention gonna be a box trailer, waiting for glue to dry then gonna do some more, will check next time near halfords! it’s cost around £20 so far so not to bad as the amount of styrene left still.

    did some more today… got some plastic primer and orange paint from halfords… gave it a few coats of each and fitted axles. the dingo arches look good but dont fit due to screws not long enough so will make some new arches sometime this week,
