Does anyone have experience with MCW enamel metallics? I am using their Guardsman Blue and wonder if it would be better over a silver coat or is white stynelres sufficient? Thanks, John

Your best bet would be to call Mike or Alex at MCW and ask them. You'll find Mike and Alex very helpful.

I can tell you that enamels go down fine to Stynylrez primer, MCW should be no exception. My only thing is that mid blue metallic paint is one color I prefer to shoot over a silver base, not for compatibility but tonal control. But non the less, enamel goes over Stynylrez fine, nothing funny or odd happens. It might come out slightly lighter shot over white than silver. In certain light to me there is an added appeal to metallic blue shot over a silver base.

That said, I've shot plenty of enamels in my day, over 60 years modeling and 35 years painting 1/1. I have not shot MCW but their paint is just PPG products range as I recall. It should go as any other enamel paint, PPG is a well recognized auto paint manufacturer.
