Re: Best Paint for Foam?

Frenzy, I don't really know how to tell the difference. These are armaments collected over time from several sources.

The foam is uniform and does show a tight and uniform cell structure, much smaller than I've seen on other types. The only breaks in the surfaces finish were reliefs and markings I assume are from the mould interior faces.

Tracon, where do you source your paints? Asking as the closest LHS for me is quite the drive, but I am heading out there soon to pick up orders.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

Re: Best Paint for Foam?

Tracon I like your DC3, nice copy of the buffalo air paint job. Where did you get it? The testors you use, are they the ones you use on plastic static models?
