    Hey guys, starting my 1/350 enteprise refit soon... got stocked up on lacquer paints for the aztecs.. man they are harsh with the fumes.. anyway... i have only used acrylics up till now and im guessing i need some sort of lung protection..

    Question is: What do you guys use when working with lacquers? :confused

    And a facemask to breathe thru if you're doing a lot of spraying inside.

    Make sure the breather you get is rated for organic vapors. Paint and lung tissue don't play well together.:)
