Thumbing through the AMA mag is saw a place called warbird colors . Does anyone use their paint for scale helis ? They claim the paint is a waterbase and fuelproof . I want to paint my CH 47 Navy grey like a Marine chinook and keep the paint flat . I think spraying clear over it would look crappy .

Have you contacted them? I know that this paint is really popular with the scale guys flying planks. To be honest I doubt it fuel proof. There always a flat clear coat that works very well for scale appearance. If your running 30% nitro be sure and mention that when you talk to them. Most are only good up to 15%.

Spoke with the owner of nelson today and he said he can add enough additive to the water base paint to protect it up to 90 % nitro . So that's good to know . Now I just need to find the correct FS code for the paint .
