has anyone tried airbrushing pactra rc paints on model cars?

they have some hot colours and the price is pretty good too.

Unfortunately, those paints are meant to be applied to the inside of the clear lexan bodies and are not glossy. Someone has talked about using a clear overcoat to shine them up a bit, but I don't remember what product was used.

If I remember right, they are also very hot as chemicals. Sprayed directly on plastic they could melt your model. Use a good primer.

Ive only used pactra 3 times and its worked very good. Again, the paint isn't gloss, but pactra does sell a gloss sealer/clearcoat, but I'm still yet to try it. I would recommend it.

They are formulated to bend with the plastic bodies of RC cars.
