Paint questions

Recommended Posts

Was wondering what you guys all find is the closest out of the can for metal areas on jets specifically the F-4, 14, 15, 16, and 18 mainly the engine areas etc. Thanks

If you're looking to use rattle cans for the areas you mentioned,  I strongly recommend Tamiya’s various silver and gunmetal sprays. They are very realistic, spray ever so nicely and hold up to masking. For the areas you're talking about, i lean heavily on Bare Metal Aluminum, Dark Gunmetal and Light Gunmetal. I also use Tamiya acrylic clear Amber and Blue to airbrush heat staining. If you spray this over the spray can metal colors but don’t like the effect, you can wipe it away with a little alcohol and reapply until you get the desired result.. I’m sure other modelers have worthy ideas on the topic.

Pretty sure the metal area on the F-15 is titanium.
