Any type of water based acrylic seems fine. There have been various threads in the past covering this subject. Suggest you use the search engine to find them because some actually have the product names that various members have used.

Good Luck, Rob.

Yep, I wasn't sure if this type of foam was different from most of the others. Any how, I got some acrylic paint at my local craft store that seems to work very well. Thanks guys--Rob

What brand of acrylic? I need to add some color to my Twinstar now that I got the maiden flight out of the way. It looks like a flying blob of wet newspaper.
-HEY- Anybody tried Paper Mache for a light structure?

Minwax Polycrylic is available at most home store and discount retail stores like Wal-Mart, as is the lightweight spackle if you have dings to fill. The paint is standard Testors or Model Masters paint. Since your plane isnít the beam foam type, a very light coat of Polycrylic would be all the prep you need to paint with spray or airbrushed enamel paints.
