    Well known machine, that I don't need to introduce. Completed in 1,5 month, without bigger modifications.

    Woah! Nice! Can you give us a run down of the paints you used for the natural metal finish?

    Of course. It's Alcad-2 "chrome for lexan"-alc 114, sprayed on black gloss Humbrol enamel used as base. Partly (main girder, ailerons, rudder) the base is semi-gloss (also humbrol enamel).

    So if I understand you correctly it's all the same paint, just different finish black base coats?

    Yes. Exactly. Painted by only one Alcad paint on different bases. That avoids a need of risky operation of masking a silver Alcad coat by tape.
