Not having access to my AB to enable me to spray Testors dullcote or matt finished paints for aircraft and armour has been a bit of a bind............... until now.

Just found these two rattle cans at my local motor factors:

This one gives a complete matt finish:

This one is a clear primer but gives a satin finish:

Hi Al,

When I first started with the airbrush I tried using the Vallejo Grey Primer, but for some reasons it just wouldn't adhere properly and would peal away from the body if I caught it wrong whilst sanding, I did ask Vallejo about it, but they couldn't come up with an answer other than to try their latest version, so since then I have always used the Hycote stuff, I've never had any problems with either their Grey Primer or the Clear Lacquer (touch wood) and it last's ages too...
