Larry I'm kinda late here as I'm reading old threads looking for a specific GWS Dc-3 aka C-47 video. All my foamies are painted with house exterior semi-gloss Ben/Moore paints. Thinning for airbrush is simply water. Minwax makes a polycrylic high gloss clear top coat. After decals light spray ensures decal will stay put. Your choice of colors is infinate and the cost very cheap. Fokker Dr-1, Ben/ Moore Heritage red, decals made on computer, applied wood glue little water, and clear coated. Coat for high gloss if prefered. 10 min dry time and wha La. Cliff

Got good shots of my C130 in the air last week, I know it's been in this thread before but I was so pleased with the pics, hope you don't mind. Fly's great.

Cliff -- Can you (do you) put your Minwax Polycrylic in your airbrush? I don't know why, but I've been afraid to try this... If so, do you thin it 50/50 like the paint?

David -- AWESOME, dude! Just awesome.

Red, it's recommended to not thin but I thin about 25% water 75% clear, with airbrush, flows out nice and dry time is nill. I spent a fortune on Faskolor, Tamiya, and the like but my local hardware store sells me qts of my choice same price. Cliff PS another thought-- next time you buy meat save the foam container, clean well, and you not only have repair material but a test paint area to boot!!!!

Now THIS plane is pretty, too. It's beautiful even with an ORANGE prop (have you been reading the other threads objecting to the color of props???)

I wonder if this man in the UK has access to some Scotland colors for the Spitfire. I understand that there is one being or has been re-constructed in a museum in Edinburgh??

If he does, I'd be interested in seeing or hearing about it. Oh, my daughter in law is from Scotland. Would do a Spitfire in HER colors if I know what they were.

Seriously, that is a pretty plane.

Larry I don't understand the orange prop thing. A black magic marker works and without the added weight of paint. Here's the GWS 8X6 prop on the balancer with magic marker.

Alternatively, hobby stores could start carrying the BLACK GWS props instead of the orange ones...

Or GWS could stop MAKING orange props -- what's the point of an orange prop anyway? Safety? When that orange prop spins up, you can't see it anyway.

that was friendly "sarcasm"; I don't care what color they are; 99% of MINE are orange. I was just alluding to "other people" complaining about the color; there is a whole thread dedicated to that.

Sorry, I'm so often "long winded" that sometimes I venture out and try to be more abbreviated, and THEN it isn't clear.

i'm aware that there are orange, grey, and black props, but presently I'm not a talented enough of a flyer to get fussy about the prop colors, (yet, ha).

Thanks for your concern, tho.

LOL -- I apologize... Truth be told, I'm one of those "other people" who complain to GWS about the orange prop color. If you search that dedicated thread, you'll probably see my posts.

Again, I apologize. I'm trying to not give "knee jerk" reactions these days -- it's one of my many shortcomings...
