I find ALCLAD to be the best airbrush paint to simulate metal.
Two things you HAVE to do to get good results: (see the videos below)
- Start with the brightest gloss BLACK paint you can find. I suggest ALCLAD's gloss black paint.
- Spray fairly close to the item with THIN coats. These coats can be applied almost immediately after each other. Don't build up too much paint. I use a low pressure of around 7-10 PSI.
Choose from the color selection above.

I have yet to use Alclad II and be unsatisfied. This is a high performance product yet I find it easy to use and I am by no means a professional at modeling. Its finish is amazing and very realistic. So glad I discovered this product.
