    Jan 30, 2009, 5:38 AM - Rubber Knee Painting #1

    Hi all

    In regards to the fantastic rubber knees available now from FP/SR, I know the usual painted recommended is Pactra or Krylon Fusion but i wondered if anyone has tried Humbrol Enamels with any success?

    your thoughts would be greatly appreciated

    cheers

    Jon

    I buy it at a local RC and Hobby store. It the car body paint made by Pactra. I used bright yellow on the knees. And then misted it with Pumpkin Orange straight from Walmart Krylon. I have a showoff thread with some of my FP Stormrider knees.

    Model testors Chrome silver. It rocks as much as your Dungeons and Dragons card collection.

    So the conclusion here is;

    Pactra yellow and Krylon Fusion silver. is that correct?

    cheers for the input guys
