    RE: paint question

    It will work and then the first time you wreck the paint will chip off. The polycarbounate paint adheres to the lexan.

    RE: paint question

    I've tried standard Testors and it does not adhere well at all. If you manage to get it to stick it will look pretty pooled and uneven most likely.

    Tamiya PS-Sprays or Pactra only.
