Polycarbonate Paints

04 March 2014 - 02:52 PM

I recently picked up a few Pactra paints for Polycarbonate in a bulk purchase on everyone's favorite auction site. Having never used them, I'm curious as to if they can be used on styrene. I'm kinda thinking that as long as the styrene is primed, it should be ok, but don't want to waste a good kit to ruined body. Does anyone have experience in using these paints? Any tips or things to avoid? BTW, these are in rattle cans, if that makes any difference.


Thanks, John

Ok, so what's the difference between buffing and non-buffing? This 40 yr absence from modeling has so many questions being raised...and I haven't even started a kit yet!


Thanks, John

Been lookin for one of these for some time. Lots of them out there, but who makes the best one? By best, I mean the one with the fewest problems in fit/finish/assembly. I'm not as young as I used to be and haven't built a kit in 40 years or so, but got the itch.


Thanks, John
