We tried Createx and it didn't adhere to the lexan very well. I would stick with Faskolors

I use Createx paint and never had any problems with adhesion, Also there is quite a few threads on here related to this if you need to be convinced more.

There are other paints that will work as well such as Auto Air (made by same company as createx) but I believe will require thinning, like Dane said Faskolor and there used to be Spaz stix and also a guy called Jon Mills (RCS he has thread for his work on here) I've heard his Paint sticks like ....! but haven't tried it personally YET.

i used CREATEX on my body for my HPI blitz. i have not ran the body yet, but the paint flows nice and seems to stick very well... take a plastic coke bottle spray some createx on the plastic bottle when it drys beat the coke bottle on something soild to see if the paint flakes off.

I've been using Createx paints for 2 years and have never had any of it flake off. My customers haven't had any issues with it either. Had one get hit so hard the body was dented, popped the dent out and you wouldn't know it ever happened by looking at the paint.

Comes in Opaques, Pearlized, Iridescents, Transparents and Flourescents. No thinning required, just shake well and spray straight from the bottle

Opaques are solid colour meaning not transparents and come in a variety of colours (red, blue, purple, yellow etc etc etc.....)

transparent as the name suggests are transparent and you can see through them even after several coats but allow for a large variety of effects to be created by spraying various patterns etc behind the colour.

I only use electric but back with Plasticote clear enamel (as suggested by Jon mills on here, works just fine). I've also been told Rustleom enamel (painters touch) works a treat as well.

I believe you would use Nitro block to protect from fuel?

When you back it with your choice of enamel it makes it pretty fuel resistant.
