What kind of paint/brand do people use for planes/warbirds? I need to get federal Standard Light Gull Gray and want a flat finish.

Thanks,
Nate

Well our C-123 is flying with paint donated by Homedepot on it that we rolled on, but our C-47 is being painted with Semi-gloss PPG paint.

Check out The paint L-4Pilot used on his T-41.

We used Alumi-Grip on the F7F & Centari on the Spitfire.

What kind of paint did HD have that was appropriate (i.e. would hold up over the long term) for a C-123? Just curious.
