navigation light lens colour
« on: June 28, 2018, 09:13:06 PM »

Hopefully this will be an easy answer.
My Chris Craft runabout has a twin coloured navigation light with a white led and tinted translucent self adhesive film to provide the red and green lens colour.
The original film has faded badly so I need to find a small quantity of translucent film to replace it.
I suppose I could poke about in a tin of Quality Street for a red and a green toffee wrapper and use transparent glue, but wondered what others have used?
Thank you

Have gone for the Tamiya paint. I have used their acrylics before and found them excellent. Thanks for the input.
