Ok, what's the deal here? I would love to know the difference between the colors of Testors Silver and Aluminum paint. I was thinking that the aluminum would be a flat silver??? :(

They look the same to me. The aluminum doesn't seem to cover very well when brushed on parts. I agve up on it and use Testor's Steel for exhaust pipes, springs, etc.

The aluminum is a semi-gloss and should have a bit more of a gray tinge to it. The silver is a gloss paint. Make sure you mix the both paints thoroughly as they will change color and start to look alike. Hope this helps.
