    Tamiya 1/48th, OOB, just seat belts. My First successful use of alcaD aluminium. All you need is a good gloss black base, that is well dry, and gloss evreywhere. Black gloss base is enamel but thinned with cellulose thinner. Alcad sprayed in layers, not 1 thick layer. Allow this base metal color to dry properly and will start to spray different shades.

    Already love the metal effect Guz, try to get different panel effects will look more realistic! Did you manage to spray ALCLAD in thin layers on low pressure, or you thinned it more than it is?

    Thanks, I will try different shades for panel effect. Sprayed in thin layers straight from the bottle as it comes. Pressure was sort of neither high nor low, can say more like medium low, but don't tell me the PSI, just went by feel.
