Hey there jeffsch,

I really like your Supercub LP Coastguard colour scheme . If you don't mind me asking, What type of paint and process did you use to achieve that look? I have a Supercub LP that I am looking to do the same design on but I am having a very tough time finding the appropriate paint that will not eat the foam of my plane. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Amp, I used light coats of commonly-available spray paint. The fluorescent red/orange covers well over the white foam.

The HobbyZone foam on the wings and the top of the fuselage is resistant to the propellants used in spray cans; you should be able to use pretty much any spray paint there. The bottom of the fuse is a piece of Depron, and you probably want to seal it first with something foam safe, like a coat of water-based polyurethane. If you are having troubles with the paint attacking the foam, you may wish to lay down water-based polyurethane before spraying the wing and fuse.

The tail feathers are paper-coated foam and took paint just fine as long as the paper is intact. The cowl is plastic and needs to be sanded lightly before it will take paint well.

More details on the scheme in the original post:

Good luck with yours!
