Came upon an article were the builder used latex paint in order to achieve a seamless air inlet inside, and have just been trying to find out how this was done, since i remembered someone using the same technique somewhere on LPS, but alas i couldn't find it.

Could someone point me in the right direction? it's appreciated.

 

TIA

 

Jack.

I did it with my Phantom intakes, but used One-Shot sign painter's paint instead of latex, it worked well.

Hey thanks D.B., only problem is i wouldn't know any equivalent in Europe, since ordering these brands from the States is restricted for airtransport.

Anyhow, i'll start a search over here.

I have used this method a couple of times in smaller scale F-16's. I did read that emulsion/latex has a tendency to wrinkle and pull away after a while so I tried it with Gunze Sangyo Mr Base White using the same method, just swapping out the paint. Worked fine. Sealed with Future/Klear in the same method as painting it to get that intake sheen. Will try it again should I ever actually build the Tamiya F-16 thats in the stash. At the moment it just seems to be collecting after market in the same way my Trumpeter Avenger is.

You will have to "prepare" a little the intake if you want it 100% seemless, the paint doesn't do everything by itself ! :)

 

I did not used latex paint but standard wall paint.

I use this technique each time i have to paint an intake which is impossible to paint cleanly with the airbrush because it's too long or too curvy.

Hope this helps !

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)
