Having problems with chipping paint in the MD, and after having to take a dremmel to some of the windshield mounting screws, Im gonna need some touch up!

I was hoping to find a silver paint to make a weathered look...

anyone have any ideas? is testors model paint fuel proof in the little bottles?

I could use a can and spray on carboard and use a brush from there!?!

testors paint isnt fuel proof. i use the rustoleum form the spraycan or the 21st century paints, also from the can.

drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

Hi temp engine enamal

I may not be absolutely correct, but I think you have to bake the high temp engine enamel to get it really fuel proof.

Ok if you can bake the part, but on plastic or fibreglass, I didn't want to chance it.

Somebody may be able to enlighten me more...........

the best way to fuel proof is to use automotive clear honestly. and dblex since you stayed with the military look. if you wanted to clear it get the flattening agent of the clear then before that you could touch up with createx or even tamiya latex paints the olive drab or since you want the weathered look try the silver on like an old sponge. dap a little on it then take the access off in a piece of paper then rub the fuse with whats left on the sponge. it will work like the old dry brush technique pinstrippers used. or you could use a brush. soft bristles work the best and like it sounds dry brush it.
