    That looks great, well done. Like the blue it’s good.

    Looks good. I sprayed a Primus 111B with the same paint but it did not turn out that good.

    That blue is rocking !

    @Andrew Let me pass on a tip for anyone wanting to use a spray can if I may. I learned by accident years ago that replacing the spray nozzle cap with one from a can of carburetor cleaner shoots a long even spreading cone out. Stand 6-8' feet away and get a nice even light coat. Once you have found a nozzle that you like mark it and keep it separate for DIY jobs. It helps to keep the streaks and runs down to a minimum. It is also a great way to give a mist coating for a hue effect.

    I'm on the way....
    A shaving foam nozzle may not be advisable I guess. Although it depends on what sort of finish you tequire, not an experiment I'll be trying in a hurry.

    Although I may adopt a previous recommendation to keep the cans warmed in water.

    Another little trick is to make sure your object is reasonable warm - helps minimize the runners
