Mixing paint brands is risky. Incompatibilities can ruin a paint job. I suggest that you spray test panels, before spraying your air frame.

It's best to do this before applying any paint to the model. That way, you won't create problems that are difficult to repair.

My experience with Lustrkote tells me that I want to paint it over Lustrekote only.

Its not so much brand of paint as it is the type of paint. If you follow the chart below, you should be OK.
