    \r\n I use acryllic paint. Enamel seems to go on kinda gunky for me and doesnt seem to dry as fast. Some here that make pretty good customs (like Spike) use enamel I believe though.\r\n

    \r\ni use both testors and model masters enemal paints. i get them at a local hobby lobby. the testors enemals can some times be a little glossy unless you get a color that specifiacly has flat in the name. testors seems to stick well. model master takes a while to dry and i usually have to put some type of matte finish or clearcoat on it. the reason i like MM, is cause they always have the color im looking for.\r\n

    \r\n Krylon,
    \r\nIt comes in a rattle can, but it actually is a pretty good paint. It bonds with plastic, so you won\'t need a top clear-coat like you do with many other types of paint. I would still recomend a clear coat on any heavy-wear areas though. The only other thing I would recomend is a good air brush, & to mix your paints with an enamel hardener. You can find this in the automotive section of most paint retailers. It won\'t bond the way Krylon will, but you\'ll have a lot more control, & the hardness of your finished product is incredible if properly mixed.
    \r\n
    \r\nGood luck!\r\n
