As for touching up the lugs, go to a hobby store. They sell all kinds of model matt black paint.ed1 said:What have others done to keep the frame and white decals protected, and touching up small scratches in the aluminum lugs?
Just a work of caution, matt black is not really the same as flat black. Matt black has a very slight gloss. I know Testors sells a semi-flat black that will probably work better than flat black.
