Hi Gang,
I read up on the reviews of the GP F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair. The reviewers changed the kit colors from USN colors to FAA colors. What type of paint was used? I build scale plastic models and I have quite a few types of paint (acrylic / enamels / laquer etc.) What is the recommended type of paint? What would you clean the surface with to prep for painting?

Thanks
Gary ;)

Since it is a foamie I'd go with acrylic. Surface wash with rubbing alcohol.
