Kristof,

The reason that I asked was to get some impression of what the paint has to withstand etc.
On my slopers, I use all single pack acrylic lacquer. This is mainly due to the advantage of it's ease of touch up after dings etc. Slopers often have a hard life, as you no doubt know.
I have no experience with DLG's, but expect they fare much better in this regard. However, weight is your main concern is it not? In which case I assume you want fewer coats rather than more. One coat of either a good quality 2 pack or a single pack acrylic lacquer might be best choice for you? I'm guessing the latter would be very light, as it can go on very thin. Relatively less risk to the operator to spray. (than the 2 pack). Also cheaper and does not go off if you don't thin any more than what is required for the job. When thinned, it has a limited shelf life.

Jim.
