I'm talking about the acryllics. Model Master II has a line of metal color
laquers they're call Metalizer. The most important thing here is, laquer cause
brain damage and I don't reccomend. Laquers are used by car modelers because
they produce a better shine, but they also melt plastics as I said before.and
use laquers w/ airbrush only.

well usually I buy a flat black and flat white and mix myself and for the
verniers I usually mix whit black and silver. But when I'm really lazy I just
leave it in primer color. well I hope this helps.
