Hi Casper,
You can indeed use the same technique with a spray can or even a brush. The secret is thorough masking and patience - lots of it.
I've done the Dreamliner scheme on a 787 with rattle cans http://buildthebismark.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=models&action=display&thread=2666 after my old Tamiya compressor died and was to impatient to wait for my elephant to arrive from Hong Kong.
If brush painting - thin the paint well - about 50/50 paint/thinner and brush on multiple coats with a broad chisel brush let each coat dry thoroughly before doing the next. Flat and semi gloss paints behave better when brushed and tend to dry quicker than gloss paint, and a gloss coat can be added later by rattle can. Vallejo and Games workshops acrylics paint brush paint really well.
To add temptation, this is where I got my airbrush kit from, but be warned the shipping times can be long and they sell through quick once stock arrives! http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=9294 or for a bit more you can get this: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10340, this would be good for Shane: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=9295
And once you have an airbrush you can start playing with this stuff for the shiny bits: http://alclad2.com/
If you are worried about paint bleeding under the masking tape where it goes over surface details and engraved lines, after masking - make the first coat of paint either clear or the base colour then any 'leaks' will be no-see-um :D
Happy painting.

Hi Morrigan
thanks for the tips and links :D
I think i may get a cheap hobby-airbrush like the one in the link just to see what they are like. Been after an airbrush for years. I have seen the alcad paints before ,it looks really good stuff. I saw some on e-bay a while back and seem to remember it being very expensive but if used in an airbrush it goes a long way.
Did a little work on the Herald earlier today, should post pics tomorrow. :)

Well i finnaly got some bits done on the Herald. Painted the underside in grey and painted the frame in matt black. Wish i had left it grey now but no matter.
Did the seats in a rubbed leather matt, can't remember the paint number off hand. I then dry brushed a darker shade in areas to show wear and tear. it kinda looks ok.
The tyres are matt black and the wheels are cream. Also did a wood grain affect on the dash but it's difficult to see in the photos bellow.

As the side windows come as one piece they will need altering as well.
I have a nasty twist in the floor again just like i had with the cat but it should pull back ok.

:lol:
choping the top off was easy, putting one back on not so :) for me anyway
i thought i would just put some sort of cover at the rear to make it look packed away. A small piece of plastic maybe.

A bit of tissue soaked in thin PVA will give you that nice folded canvas look.
