For a wartime vehicle, which is the best paint, and who supplies it?

Strange, they only post in my threads when it's controversial, seems they want to vent their spleens whilst claiming victimhood ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEwVpWFyy3M

"I reflect on the infamous 1987 photograph by American artist Andres Serrano that depicts a crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist's urine. I remember all the leftists that jeered and mocked me, and many Christians like me, for being bruised by that photograph (the title of which I would rather not verbalize). They scoffed and told us to get a life. These are the same people today, unsurprisingly, who are stridently arguing for curtailment of free speech not to offend Muslims."

Watch out for some types of paint from some of the suppliers as they can take a fair few days to fully dry. I bought some and it was still soft a week later so when you handled it left finger prints and marked easily.

Doesn't matter. Anything from B&Q will do. In fact any vehicle will do.
Take a leaf out of the Military Vehicle types who rock up in a 100% correct MVs wearing shorts and a t-shirt, roll their eyes and say "It's not about the clothes"
Just get all your kit 100% correct and rock up in a Fiesta with ARMY chalked on the side, roll your eyes and say "It's not about the motor"

I really pi555es me off when people come up with statements like this try driving a MV for any distance and I
do not mean 10 or 15 miles down the road in full military gear and you will be in shorts and T shirts most get
into the spirit of the event but be honest the members of the public come to see the dioramas of dug in troops
etccc and to look at the vehicles which most event organisers place a no driving ban during the day so what do
you want them to do kit up and sit behind the wheel for 8 hours if asked I let groups use my vehicle as a back
drop in fact on year at the Victory Show one of our members even landed his WW2 U.S. spotter plane and they
fetched it into the display area and set up around it and I have even lent the 25 pounder as well at events
