Default Painting SPADs

Hey guys; who has tried painting coroplast? What worked and what didn't? How about painting the PVC fuselage? Thanks; Ernie P.

Rustoleum works good, from what I have tried and read about, that is the best stuff to use,it just takes a while to dry , here are pictures of my results. Taping over a painted surface sometimes peels it up and then i sprayes some and applied it witha brush to touch up, looks ok from a distance, as seen in the spad extra picture

I have used water-based acrylics with good success. You have to make sure it is completely dry, I suggest a day or two, else you can end up with a gummy paint job once any glo fuel gets around it. If, for some reason, you screw up your paint job or want to modify it later, you can remove it with acetone. I thoroughly clean my SPADs with acetone before any gluing or painting (never have tried the "flashing" with a torch technique and never had glue joints fail.
