Hi folks. Ive looked thru a few threads and still unable to find the answer so my full aplogies if its been covered, What sort of paint should i use to paint these little fellas?? Aswell as their accessories like the fuel rig and car jacks. Thanks!
The acryllic pots just don't cover as well in one coat with most colours, but they do dry fast.
Enamels also allow you to mix colour while applying to give a good grubby trackside authentic feel to the little guys, unless you like 'em looking like they just squeaky-clean walked out of the dry cleaners.
I use artist acrylics over a Tamiya primer, or student grade acrylics for a cheaper version. The artists acrylics give more control of colour and texture. Half a dozen or so basic colours is really all you need, any other colours or shades you can mix for yourself. When thoroughly dry seal with a top coat of Tamiya matt clear.
