I have a couple of Cox RTF airplanes I'd like to paint.  Hopefully with a product that sprays easily, doesn't attack the plastic, and dries to a reasonably fuel-proof finish.

Any suggestions?

I've painted an electric F8F Bearcat with Krylon Fusion for Plastics and it worked well, but have no idea if it would be fuel-proof and no longer have the airplane.

Thanks!

Dennis

Hey Dennis,

I traded some notes with Ken on this subject, and am gonna be trying this paint on a foam Carl Goldberg Ranger 42.

Haven't tried it yet.  It's applied wth sponge brushes.

I'll post the our notes once I find them.

The Krylon paints that I have used have stood up good against 35%nitro
