    Scalecoat II SPRAY paint

    I have just tried Scalecoat II SPRAY CAN paint(water based) for the first time. I am pleaseatly surprised at the nice finish. Having used air brushes for painting, I was not sure what to expect.

    The spray had a fine mist that i controlled with distance.

    One question - the finish is very glossy. I would like to hear from someone who has used Scalecoat II SPRAY CAN paint, about wheather a glosscoat spray is needed for the decals, due to the high gloss finish. ?

    Scalecoat II paint is decal-ready. No need to do anything extra to it.

    Yup, that's why it has become my first choice of paints, especially since they have several PRR colors. The locomotive below was painted with Scalecoat II Brunswick Green. :shade:

    Does anyone know a good source for Scalecoat II in spray cans besides Weaver Models? I'd like to order on the internet instead of sending in an order.

    I quit ordering from Internet Trains nearly a year ago because they are so slow. I finally got fed up and canceled my last order after waiting a month with no word on the status.
    Ordered from ScenicExpress and got the order in three days.
    Any other suggestions?

    My experience with them was also horrendous.

    Caboose Hobbies and Walthers both stock Scalecoat

    As InternetTrains is the largest advertiser on this site, I have ordered from them and have never had any problem.

    I've communicated with the owner many times and I know that they are dedicated to customer satisfaction.

    If you had an issue, I would have suggested taking it directly to them.

    I painted an undec KATO SD-40-2 with Cornell Red.

    Got reminded of an old lesson - always paint a primer coat. The engine cab part and the body tinted (dried) to different shades......

    So, a coat of light gray wil be required to provide a base color for parts.

    I had thought that Cornell Red would be dark enough to not matter -
    Wrong !

    Charlie,
    I went that route with no success. Finally got fed up. Too many responsive dealers advertise also. It is not my intent to disparage Internet Trains I am just stating facts.
