Hi everyone. I painted some of my plastic aircraft models with alclad 2 paints. I want to try them in sabers. Does anyone used them on sabers?

Alclad relies on the base coat. As long as you can get a super-glossy black base, it doesn't really matter what you're painting on.

That said, when you've got a metal hilt to work on, most folks would prefer to polish the aluminum and then put a transparent color over it if you need to emulate another metal.
