Killer paint jobs: How do you do it?

I have two white slope glider GWS (109/spit) coming to replace my tree slaying P51 mustang.

I want to throw a real nice paint job on this one like I see posted by others here in the forum.

If you have links to threads on the subject in your bookmarks kindly throw them in here. Links to faqs too!

a light sanding to knock down the high rough areas, then a light coat of acrylic primer to seal the foam. Then I use Tamiya military colors to do the painting, usually use the airbrush....

This is a real good place for paint schemes for your 109. Did mine in the North Africa Camouflage. turned out real nice.It gives you the RML numbers so you can cross reference it with model master paints. http://www.flugzeugwerk.net/camo.htm
