Lacquers and varnishes; Enamel Vs. Acrylic? and silver paint finishes.

Recommended Posts

I'm nearly finished the Academy P-51B/C and wondered if anyone had any issues with Humbrol matt cote on metallic finishes? What is your favourite? Is Valejo any good? What is the BEST make? i know some of you use the airbrush but i like to paint them by hand. I remember a few years back having an issue with Humbrol 11 (silver) that started to show signs of coming off when i painted on the mattcote (found traces of silver paint on the brush) I then started to use the Humbrol Metalcote range which seemed fine. Am i right in thinking then that its better to use an acrylic varnish (FOR kits) when lacquering over a silver finish?
