Thanks for getting back to me, yes it is one of those plastic guns that clip onto the ring of the can. Did you find that you had a good control of the flow?
Thanks again
Chris

1.Opinions on using a spray paint can with a spray gun?


Do you mean one of those plastic pistol grip handles that you clip on to the top of the spray can? (Otherwise not sure what you mean.) I have one of them and it does make it easier to control the paint flow, instead of pressing the tiny button. Key with a spray can is to keep it moving quickly, applying as little paint as possible and building up if necessary, to avoid over application.

Hello there, At present I am making the 1/72 LCAC and have 2 questions.
1.Opinions on using a spray paint can with a spray gun?
2.Has anyone made the LCAC In 1/72 scale and did you fill out the cushion to give it a really filled out affect. As it can't be in an unload position.
Any and all help much appreciated.
Chris
