PARMA Faskolor?
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, November 5, 2003 7:03 AM
As some of you may know from other topics, I am fairly big into RC car racing. Well RC Car bodies(made of Lexan)require a special paint which will flex with the surface. Parma FasKolor is one of the paint brands used in the industry. They have some pretty unique colors which arent available in traditional modeling brands. I also noticed lastnight that they said the colors could be used on Wood and other crafts.

What I am wondering is is there anyone else that has tried airbrushing these colors or brand on regular styrene? Im going to give it a shot but was wondering if any one has had some success or has any tips for me. Thanks!

I have an old Guard buddy that is into model railroading and he has used that paint on both plastic and metal and seems to have no problem with them - I haven't tried them personally though - going on a tangent - My youngest son (who works for a company that produces kit cars (Cobras and 34 Ford Coupes), recently told me of an additive for enamal paints that makes the dried paint flexible - It was developed because of all the flexible plastic parts in the body work of the new cars today - Again I've never tried it but he said that it as available at most automotive paint stores - Might be worth looking into if for no other reason that it would allow you to widen your selection of colors with out having to mix and matchBig Smile [:D]

Thanks for the reply I will have to look into the other option. Im going to attempt to airbrush one of my autos in A FasKolor scheme after I get my new compressor...
I'll post my results and findings. I know the stuff works great on Lexan for RC cars...
