Hello there, At present I am making the 1/72 LCAC and have 2 questions.
1.Opinions on using a spray paint can with a spray gun?
2.Has anyone made the LCAC In 1/72 scale and did you fill out the cushion to give it a really filled out affect. As it can't be in an unload position.
Any and all help much appreciated.
Chris

Do you mean one of those plastic pistol grip handles that you clip on to the top of the spray can? (Otherwise not sure what you mean.) I have one of them and it does make it easier to control the paint flow, instead of pressing the tiny button. Key with a spray can is to keep it moving quickly, applying as little paint as possible and building up if necessary, to avoid over application.

Thanks for getting back to me, yes it is one of those plastic guns that clip onto the ring of the can. Did you find that you had a good control of the flow?
Thanks again
Chris
