Default Painting Orlandoo body

I'm expecting to have my first Orlandoo kit today, but I was wondering about paint.

I've got Tamiya spray paint for lexan RC Car bodies, but didn't know if I needed a special paint for the orlandoo body. I'm assuming yes, but want to confirm what you guys have used.

Thats a great question I recently wondered about myself! When I painted my blackjack I almost did it with tamiya orange, but was worried it would not adhear correctly. So I ended up buying kylon specifically for plastic on my blackjack and it went on the hardbody much like tamiya paint goes on lexan if that makes sense. I kind of regret not trying it because my bronco would have been duke of hazzard orange and black.

You could use lexan type paint (PS) but i usually use TAMIYA (TS) spary can and some acrylic paint (manual hand brush). The advantages i found on TS/Acrylic is that if i made a dry spill on body works could easily scraping the paint off using finger nail.

Wow. Nice job on those bodies!

I'll have to finalize what color scheme I'm after then decide what to use. It's such a small truck that buying an entire can of paint seems like a waste... Of course, I could always paint a matching big brother or sister for this little guy

The bodies are 'styrene, so you can also use model-car paints. I used Testors enamels and custom mixed a color for my Jeep. If you have an airbrush you can thin the paint down and spray lighter coats. It's pretty easy to get too much paint on these little bodies. Then the details start to blur. I have a hard time with light coats from a rattle can sometimes.
Good luck with it and show us some pic's.

Red paint is done!

Any idea how long I should wait before masking and painting the black roof and fenders? The Tamyia instructions are so bad and don't explain anything.
