When it comes to painting the model cars, the most important is the choice of color or the paints. While you paint the replicas, you would get a privilege to color it the way you like. Suppose an original model car is not available in golden, you can still paint in this color if your mind says so. Before you pain the cars, you should check the common paints for the cars online Australia. Doing the same would provide you with the opportunity to find the conventional ways of painting. Most people opt for either aqueous or water-based color or the oil0based enamels for painting the model cars.

Some of the popular paints meant for the replicas include testers, humbrol, and model masters. These paints with mineral spirits dry slowly and harden with smart and glossy finish. Some of the diecast models paints include paints like pollyscale, tamiya, floquil, valejo etc. Both of the water acrylics and the oil acrylics are good for model car paintings. Next after selecting the type of paints, you should know about the process of painting the diecast models. There are actually three main ways with which you can paint the cars.
