    A bit of info for Hobby owners.

    Most hobby owners will be aware that the broad blue band around the bottom of the vehicle is not paint, but an adhesive PVC film. This is great if a fairly large area needs to be replaced, but is problematic if you need to "touch in' small scratches and stone chips.

    The downside is that Hobby don't supply any 'touch in' paint.

    I was in contact with Hobby yesterday in an effort to find the correct paint code for touching in a couple of small stone chips, and they told me that there were two shades of blue that they use for this express purpose. They are both VW colours.

    Z5V Azure blue
    L5Y Nebio blue

    I hope somebody finds this useful:Smile:
