Epoxy Paints in the UK
Does anyone know where I can get such paints in the UK? Or should I forget it and use std paints?
I intended to use tissue/dope covering on my P-47 with a topcoat of K&B epoxy paint. Maybe I should just use Solarlac or equivalent.
What about a final clear coat?
Any car paint shop that mixes the paint for you can supply it. There is bound to be one near you. If your yellow pages doesn't suggest one, try contacting a local car body repair company and ask them where they get their paint from.
Regarding weight, that really depends on how much you put on. The F3a pattern flyers are very weight conscious yet they all paint their fuselages and some paint the wings too.
If you use a 2-pack clearcoat then you only need a single pack base colour underneath. Remember: for metallics you have to clearcoat over the top as the metallic colour coat has no shine. The base colours are dead easy to apply too, you can just keep goin over them till you get the depth of colour you want.
PS If you talk nicely to the person at the local car body repair company he might point his spray gun at your model after he's done spraying a car with a 2-pack clear.
