I have actually a P-47D all set to paint and also I don"t understand what sort of basic coat to put down because that Alclad Aluminum top coat.

Lacquer first, climate enamel or acrylic. You"re safest that way! There are exceptions with applying lacquer over some acrylics, yet it"s no worth the danger of a reaction later on IMO. Because that Alclad, they have actually their very own gloss black color base coat, yet I"ve checked out their topcoats crack over it. I"ve applied Alclad over gray primer with excellent results. If you want to begin with gloss black, element the plastic first with gray auto primer like Plastikote i beg your pardon is very smooth. There"s likewise a primer accessible through the huge craft stores which ns can"t remember the surname of that is also really good. After ~ that, use a can of gloss black auto touch-up paint. Squirt a sufficient quantity into your airbrush"s jar, and thin with lacquer thinner as needed. I"m no at all sure if Alclad has actually revised your gloss black color base in current years. Possibly someone to know if they have done so?

In fact, the rule are really simple.

 

Paint consist mostly out that a number of different liquids, dubbed solvents.

 

It room these solvents that brought about some times troubles with various other paint"s when applying them on top of paint from a various sort.

 

Now, in fact, you deserve to not apply lacquer (in Belgium whe call them cellulose paint"s) on enamels (synthetic paint) or acrylic.

 

But there space exceptions.

 

It"s a mather of exactly how you use lacquer paint.

 

For instance: you paint a model with enamels.

 

Let"s to speak whe apply on optimal of the enamel basecoat, Alclad II.

 

The rules are simple, simply apply very thin class of Alclad paint, top top the surface, an initial layer must be a more foggy layer, and between the class you need a drying time of 5 minutes. After ~ that, you build up the layers.

 

Why do it like this?

 

When girlfriend spray a very thick great of lacquer ~ above enamel, the solvents that the lacquer based paint reasons the damages done ~ above the enamels.

The solvents will instead of escaping thrue the air, impact the basecoat for this reason much, the it will be damage, through a bad result at the end.

 

When spraying a more thinner layer, the solvents will perform the reverse, lock will have actually no time to impact the basecoat due to the fact that they will certainly be dissapeared trough the air so fast before they have the right to react on the basecoat..

 

The same go"s with acrylic paints, once putting lacquer paints ~ above them.

 

Just remember, acrylic paints are more stronger then enamel paints, due to the fact that of the various sort of pigments used and different sorts of solvents.
