On armour + the helmet I used acrylic based car spray for the primer + the silver then, after masking, a mixed matt enamel green...when fully dry the acrylic is **** tough!!!..but the thinner enamel is scrape-able [lightly !]with a blade to enhance scratches etc....
On similar things to fett tools i've used JUST acrylic car spray silver which is tough enough for me[at the end of the day, if something gets scratched 1;we got the IDEAL project to disguise it on + 2;one type/layer wotever of paint is easier, quicker +less expensive to respray........apart from that i'm **** lazy!<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT="">
