Paint Application Process

2 Coats of KD-3000 primer/sealer sprayed over DTM high-build primer. 3 coats of “Jerry’s Green” basecoat sprayed over KD-3000 sealer. 3 coats of HOK USC-01 Show Clear applied as finish. All finish products were reduced as needed using HOK RU-311 reducer.

Original color mix from Coast Airbrush

  • 6 parts KBC-14 (Spanish Gold Kandy)
  • 1 part BC-09 (Planet Green Shimrin)

BC09 Replacement

Due to the fact that I could still get BC-09 I used the premixed Shimrin. That said, BC-09 may not be available when it comes time to mix more paint. Here is the formulation for BC-09 (1 gallon) using Shimrin II components:

  • S2-09 - 2978.18 grams
  • FX-03 - 1174.62 grams
