Question
Painting canopies?

This may seem a little silly of a question, but, what kind of paint can you use on your plastic canopies that won't melt the plastic?
Thanks

Most use model car paints, Tamiya or Testors are two brands that come to mind, also Krylon spray paints, the one for plastics.

This is how. No, don't use testors paint. Krylon Fusion isn't bad but it sprays VERY thick.

For simple stuff, Krylon plastic kote is OK. Clear canopies, spray on the inside. Gives a nice finish.
