    Just a heads up. In the post above it shows spray paint you buy at home improvement stores. While these paints "can" work they are harder to apply. They are made for painting larger items and so they are thicker when sprayed . Hobby/model paints while they cost more are made for smaller detailed work so the spray they product is thinner. They are less likely to run or cover small details. So if you have not painted a lot odds are better you will get a better paint job if you use the hobby spray paints.
