    Hey guys and Im going to apologize to all of the veterans here on the site because Im sure that this question is raised all the time, but what type of paint do you guys suggest to use on a fiberglass helmet? Any brand names and types would help too! And if at all possible, I would really like to stay away from airbrushes. I have a rather tight budget and also have never used an airbrush before. Thanks a lot!

    Floquil Testors Master model Acylic Enamel. and yes it has been asked alot. Very little research is needed for the colors I'll leave that to you.

    If you aren't going the airbrush route, try this thread:

    Several members have used the paints in this thread, and their results have been quite impressive.

    Right on this first page of the helmet section there is thread called "UK paints." Typing "UK Paints" into the search gives you several results.
