The vallejo metal colors are actually very hardwearing paul , they can stand careful masking even before theyve had the varnish coat put on . The top clear coat also doesnt affect the shine unlike vallejo model air metallics which dont like being masked and change sheen with a top coat. Id say these metal color paints are the nearest thing to alclad but in acrylic and hence dont have the smell or hot solvent base that alclad does, i really like them. Good job too as ive got quite a bit of masking to do yet !Love it Tony! The family pics, the detective work and obviously the model.
The masking job looks to be tricky and I'm guessing that silver paint takes a while to cure before you can (carefully) remove the masks.
