PAINT and glow fuel.

Any idea of a decent spray paint that is glow-proof from say..Walmart?
I just spent a miserable evening stripping and sanding a Stinger .10
because the Krylon paint softened from one day of flying.

Mr Piz Toff, Esq.

PS...if you don't have a Stinger .10 get one. Use a .15 of course. More
fun than the law should allow and on 3 oz of fuel!

Re: PAINT and glow fuel.

Ted shuffled out of his cave and grunted these great (and sometimes not
so great) words of knowledge:

Dupli-Color Truck & Van paint (11ox - 14oz cans) is fuel resistant to
15% PROVIDED the label on the can says it is acrylic. Be advised that
most of this paint is a lacquer and should not be used over enamel
(compatibility issues). The color selection is somewhat limited though.

From personal experience, the aluminum paint is almost an exact match
for SolarTex silver covering and the Midnight Blue is extremely close to
Ultracote Midnight Blue.

You should be pretty safe with the automotive paints provided they state
acrylic lacquer/enamel on the label. SOME of the Rustoleum paints are
also fuel resistant to 15% nitro. In any case, if you are not sure, do
a test panel with the paint and after it dries expose it to glow fuel.
Better to mess up a test panel (if you are not sure ) than the plane.

If you log onto RC Universe http://www.rcuniverse.com/index.cfm
and post the question in the Questions forum, someone should be able to
provide which Rustoleum colors are fuel resistant. For fuel PROOF paint
you need a 2 part paint such as an epoxy, everything else is fuel resistant.

I wonder how long the Krylon cured before you flew?

Re: PAINT and glow fuel.

It cured a week! It's been decades since I had any real " dope" to
paint with and I assumed the paint would work. I'll get some of the
Duplicolor next time. The Stinger has those *@@(#@#&( !@ ABS plastic
decks, etc and it's almost impossable to moneycoat over them. Next one,
I'll cut foam decks and moneycoat it.

Otherwise.....a great flying little plane. If your glasses or contacts
are good and clean. Blink twice and it's GONE.

Thanks!

Try this and you will be a happy camper as well as a modeler;

Go to Brodak Models, http://www.brodak.com/ and buy yourself some
dope. Don't forget to get some "Retarder" and thinner. Brodak has
worked well with Randolph and their Butryate dope is the best you will
ever use.

Cover your models with one of the "Tex" materials or similiar cloth.
For a simple colorful and tight finish (cloth weave can be seen) a
couple coats of clear followed by a couple coats of color, then a
couple coats of mixed clear and color and you can fly fly fly. I
suggest a week to cure but in decent wx. it dries fast even though I
use retarder after the first few coats.

Now if you don't wish to dirty up your spray stuff for small jobs, drop
by the Home Depot and pick up a couple of the PREVAL spray units. Great
little fellows. They spray very well and make life easy. Acetone and
/or lacquer thinner clean up things cheaper than dope thinner.

Re: PAINT and glow fuel.

I just remembered....we've got two 30 gallon drums of butryate dope in
a hangar at the airport. Cloth and paint is FAR too heavy for a 1/2 A
Stinger .10. And dope of any kind will attack the ABS plastic Lanier
uses for cowls, decks, etc.It's a foam core wing with open bays, so the
fumes would melt it right down. No matter....I sanded all the goop off,
and I'm going to cut some foam and sheet it to go back with rather than
that crappy plastic. I love the little Stingers...I just hate to build
one.

Stick a cheap brushless electric in its nose and paint it with anything
you like. Dope isn't fuel proof either. You need a coat of 'fuel
proofer' over it.

Rustoleum in the white cans. Label says, "Stops Rust".

I believe the apparent disputes arise from Rust-Oleum putting it's name on
more than the original rust preventative oil (alkyd) based paints.

Rust-Oleum has "expanded" their line of paints and now offer things like
"Painter's Pride", "American Accents", "Farm & Equipment Enamel".,
"Outdoor Decor", " Epoxy Appliance Enamel", and the original "Stops Rust
Protective Enamel".

When a label has marketing words such as "Painter's Pride", "American
Accents", or "Outdoor Decor" I immediately suspect the target market is
Suzie Housewife in her paint spattered Nike sweats, with a Christin Dior
bandanna over her hair, yellow Platex gloves, and using the Sunday Times
as a drop "cloth". Now, Suzie does not want to deal with cleaning up in
yukky paint thinners or waiting for the paint to dry, she wants to either
spray that child's rocker she bought at the yard sale and show hubby
tonight, or clean up her stencil brush with warm water and a squirt of
Palmolive dish soap. In other words, these are most likely LATEX paints
which ARE NOT RESISTANT TO ALCOHOL (our raw fuel is mostly methyl alcohol)

This I KNOW: The Rust-Oleum non-metalic colors that are marked all of the
following "STOPS RUST", "PROTECTIVE ENAMEL", and "OIL BASED" are fuel
proof.

I SUSPECT the "Farm and Equipment Enamel" and the "Appliance Epoxy" are
also fuel proof.

Read those labels. If you see any thing that smacks of latex (words like
"vinyl" or "acrylic" etc, etc) these will not be alcohol resistant.

yes I know the recently nationwide enforced VOC laws make it harder to
know what is actually in the paints, but with a few direct questions and
careful reading, you can find out if the paint is an oil, a shellac, a
lacquer, or a damn latex.

And remember: .When in doubt..Test it out.

OK, how about a 60 size stinger, with a Fut 6XS (3 mem) OS 60 pitts muffler.
The intresting part is this plane might weigh as much as 20#, you might have
to land it fast.
