But a tip you can use with those cans is, before you spray with them, soak them in warm water. It helps the paint come out smoother and better. I usually run the water in the kitchen sink until it is hot. Then fill up a bucket. put your can sin there for about 30mins and your good to go.

that's good advice and it does work. it also increases the pressure in the can (also useful for fixing those 'airduster' cans of pressurised air).

the model spray paints are the same as regular automotive paints, but are usually not as 'hot' for plastic applications, the paint is the same sized droplet, but they are smaller and more expensive. :shock:

Believe me when I tell you, the model spray paints are NOT the same as any automotive paint. I use real automotive paints on all my customs and there is a world of difference. I used to paint real cars and it is more durable.

A mate of mine owns a business removing graffiti from walls, cars, trains etc. he reckons auto paint is the toughest paint you can buy.

Nit-picky comment, but if you're going to mass produced these and sell them (would be cool) then just an FYI that the lettering on the side of the car for the officer's names only goes on the driver's side of the yellow cars.

Excellent job though, those are the best I've seen!
