On the other hand, I have been disappointed when I paint the guns with H18
Steel (Black Iron). At least at the 1/144 scale. The grain size of H18
(and perhaps most other metallic paint) is too large for 1/144 models.

So far, I've left most of the guns un-painted, perhaps I will try a mix of
gloss black, flat black and silver/steel. Any other ideas?
