Scalecoat II C&O Blue
« on: June 01, 2014, 05:05:56 PM »

I painted 3 Atlas GP-9's with Scalecoat II C&O Blue, S2091.  After 24 hours, the paint is tacky and is flat, no gloss at all.  I used Scalecoat II S2010 on some open hoppers at the same time, and the black is glossy.  Any ideas on what is wrong?  Can I spray gloss cote over the paint without any problems.  I usually coat with dull cote after decaling.  Thanks in advance.

I've used a lot of Scalecoat II, and I never saw that problem, ever. If you airbrushed the paint on, did you use Scalecoat II thinner?

I'm at a complete loss.


Hmm... as usual...

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

I get funky results if I don't mix the paint well.

I really shook the can before painting.  The air temp was around 80-82 when I shot the gp-9s.  I shot the open hoppers with black first, then went to the C&O blue for the gees.  I never had this prob with scale coat before either.

Did you try the paint again on something else? It just may be that the paint is regular Scalecoat I in the wrong can,the stuff for brass you have to bake..Does the color look right? Maybe try putting them in the sun to dry them..
