I have decided to share my experience painting a EPP/EPO/Elapor/Z-Foam airplane, the Multiplex "Fun Cub."

It's very easy and can be done with minimal investment. I have used an IWATA airbrush gun with Createx water based t-shirt paint, but you could use a variety of spray can paints, like Krylon H2O series. Just be careful as some paints will melt the foam. Test first!

I purchased my airbrush gun(s) and paints at a local Hobby Lobby craft store. Hint, don't forget to print off the 40-60% coupon on their website.

The box fan, air filter, and air compressor was purchased at Lowes.

I'm no artist or painter! However, using my simple technique, you will find it is very easy to customize your plane, it's easy as 1-2-3.

One more note about Createx paints. They are extremely durable and last for years, with one exception. You cannot put any tape on the paint, it will pull it off. So you will notice that i plan ahead with the taping so that i never tape over an already painted area. There are ways to overcome this glitch, but it is much easier my way.

Btw, this painting project took about 10hrs to complete including taking the photos.

So, I'll walk you through the steps by narrating the photos that follow...

Good luck!
