Hi Guys,I know this might sound backwards, but has anyone sprayed their paint from a spray have the right to into a jug so that they deserve to use a brush to paint their plane?? (in mine case, simply the fuselage)The factor I ask is that the MK spray can be ~ are nearly a perfect shade match because that my MK wings, but I execute not have actually a place to spray repaint my fuselage. (I currently have the MK spray cans)I recognize that spray is the best method to a perfect finish, but my building an abilities are so bad that a cable brush would certainly be OK.

Rudy,ya go what ya gotsta do,,,,that being said, I have done that for a color I wanted to use when I was building plastic models. Not sure exactly how well that will translate for law a entirety airplane. I can suggest that you could spray it outside on a semi heat day, more important would be for it to be calm. If its speak 55 degrees, just obtain the airplane warm and the spray have the right to warm, take them outside and spray a coat, bring them in and also put the point in the bathroom with the exhaust pan running for awhile till it gasses off. Simply a thoughtAs for spraying it into a jar, i am no really confident the you could achieve much the way. Very first issue would certainly be the waste of spraying it right into the jar, you will undoubtedly loosened a good deal of paint backwashing the end of the container, and in the process of doing that you will certainly also loose some thinner which will be daunting to overcome due to the fact that you dont know what sort of thinner to change it with. Now recognize I haven't do the efforts this top top the range you space suggesting, i am simply supposing sitting right here thinking about it, It may in reality work fine. Ns cant say that its something i would desire to try, ns would quite monokote the thing entirely than shot that FWIW. However thats me, and also I haven't any kind of expertise in what you room thinking about,, i do not know say not know,,,,,Heck fill the thing up and also come top top up, we have the right to paint that in the shop for ya,, oh well, probably a touch far to journey huh,, well market stands

This will certainly sound zany come some, however I spray the can into one airbrush jar to use for trim colors. I dislike the way the stuff sprays the end of the have the right to for also if I heat it increase it splatters and has big drops that really bug me for this reason I perform the airbrush thing.I simply hold a item of wax paper over the opened in the jar, extending all however enough that the height to permit the spraying while overlapping the document over the spary nozzle. I then tilt the jar and also letterrip, spraying down the next of the jar. (Yes, the inside, of course, guys.)This is bazaar, however I did run right into losing thinner to the suggest of needing an ext once, as Mark argued might happen. I experimented by placing 3608S in it and also it operated fine. Hmmmmmmm.

That makes me wonder what the basic of the stuff is?I can't imagine to brush a whole ship's fuse' through it, though, wow. Do like note says by spraying outside. Plus, i spray in an unheated shop in the winter, periodically down come 30 degrees or so, and as lengthy as the subject, and also the paint, room warm, it works fine. I've done that for over two decades now and have never had a problem. I also leave the beast out there 'til it gasses turn off for one hour before bringing it within to my various other shop. (It stinks the ar up even then, however not practically as bad.)Have fun through this & be sure to save us informed as to your results.Blessings,Will
