I too use all types of paint, depending on what I am doing and how I want the paint to interface with what is below it or going on above it....
But my default, and what I use for 95% of uses....is Mr. Color. It is just unbelievably good. Sprays well, dries fast, and is durable and immune to most weathering.
I couldn't agree more.
Gunze lacquers are simply some of the best.
I just finished the Trumpeter 1/48 Fw190 V18 "Kanguruh"and used Gunze Silver#8 as a base coat for
LIfeColor RLM02 which scratched off beautifully to produce a recently riveted appearance: great paint.
I have access to one shop that sells Gunze: it can be hard to find.
I'm considering a new line of lacquers to carry on Model Paint Solutions, in part, because of the difficulties in
availability of Gunze in some places.
Have you found that to be the case?
