Default RE: Spray paint or brush paint?

Well... it all depends on the type finish you want. A brushed finish looks very good and authentic on a fabric covered scale plane that was actually painted in that manor. However, on many more modern scale subjects... a brushed finish... no matter how well done, just looks like you don't own spray equipment. On non-scale aircraft... whatever works for your taste is AOK allthough most people spray instead of brush these days. On large gas planes... brushed exterior latex is popular and looks quite good if done correctly. Good luck.
