    I try and use duratrax or tamiya as pactra and fascolor isnt made anymore. I bought proline airbrush pearl white but have not used it yet.

    I think duratrax quit making paint. Spaz stix ive heard alot of good about, but I only use their chrome.

    You looking at aerosol or airbrush?

    If Testors has quit making paint there must be a lot out on the market, cause I still see it everywhere. Same thing with pactra. Idk though. I just buy whatever I need.

    I used just some normal enamel spray paint that I picked up from a local Hobby lobby. Not sure if itís the best thing in the world, but it works.

    I stuck with Tamaya paints, never had a problem getting the colors I wanted.... Lexan paints are special they form a chemical bond to the Lexan, enamel doesn't do that.
