Gun metal suggestions


Recommended Posts

What do you use for Gun metal paint?

I liked using Model Master's Metallizer gun metal, but it's no longer available.

I would prefer a  lacquer...I have a can of Tamiya spray gun metal...but

it's not what I'm looking for. I want a dark, dead flat, durable finish like the

Metallizer non-buffing product.

Any suggestions?

Tamiya Metallic Grey has a flat sheen. It's available in both lacquer and acrylic. 

Another option is one of the Mr Color Metallizer colours. They have a similiar viscosity as the Model Master paints did and there's a range of colours.

I'll have a look at the Mr Color metallics. Do these paints use levelling

thinner to thin? I've used the Tamiya metallic grey a lot...also their dark Iron. I like

these, but I miss my Metallizer.

I normally use:

Lacquer:

Tamiya LP-19 Gun Metal

Alclad ALC-120 Gun Metal (air brush only)

Acrylic:

Tamiya X-10 Gun Metal

All three work beautifully for me.

That new AK Metallic wax paint looks to work nice, and stretches far too. I've seen the brass one used on ship models lately and it turns out very nice. Come in a tube similar to oil paints.
