Bare aluminium.

Fellow modellers. 
Looking for recommendations for a bare aluminium look paint for a C54 build I’ll be starting at some point. 
I’ve tried a can on humbrol metalcoat polished aluminium spray but it doesn’t go very far 1 can covered just the fuselage of a dc-10 meaning I’d need 3+ cans for the C54. 
So any recommendations please. 
Thanks.

Hi Aerotechi

 

My first choices would be either the AK Xtreme metal range of paints or Mr Colour Super Metallics.

Second those. Alclad would be good too, but only if you have an airbrush.

Vallejo Metal Color are also a good option, both for hairy stick use and airbrush, particularly their Duraluminium.
