Hello there, I've been to the Hendon model show, posted a few pix on the site, although I can't find them, their here somewhere, anyway, I noticed a great looking aircraft metal colour silver, I knew it was plastic but the paint job was so good it actually looked a slightly dull silver, apparently this is achieved by painting the whole surface jet black, then going over with this really thin looking silver almost transparent paint, what is the name of this paint used ? Look forward to your reply.
