What paint do I use to paint the guns? Do I use Testors?

I guess baghead uses "X metals" paint. It comes in a can. Anything like spray paint that satys well on plastic or metal works good.

I started out using Testors Spray enamels, but they tend to paint on too thick and aren't the greatest on durability. I mainly use Krylon Brand Paints now. Mostly Either Fusion or X-metals paints. they work really good on plastics.

Fusion is awesome. Sticks and doesn't come off. I used to actually use an airbrush, but I had to clearcoat and prime everything, and I was just too lazy to do that. With fusion, it's clean, spray, done.

I still Strongly Suggest you use a clearcoat, even with fusion, just for durability purposes.

A word of warning when using fusion it Bonds by which I mean if you get some on the inner side of the frame and try to get it off it kinda wants to take the original plastic with it, just letting you know to save you some trouble. Still damn good paint.
