I'll have a go. Provost for me, and I'll even try to use the red paint that came with the kit.

I had heard that, but I thought I would be brave. I won't, I'll buy some new.

If it's a starter kit group build why not have it so only the stuff with the kit is used and see what sort of results are acheived. I know the paints aren't the best but I have had some satisfactory builds in the past using them.
