painting minis

Hi folks, I'm new to all this. I'm working of a mini F-22. I want to brush paint it. What kind of paints can I use ? I have Americana water based enamel. Can I use model airplane paint like Testors? Thanks

What I learned from painting is that the FB will suck up the paint. I actually use an oil based polyurethane before I paint my planes. I believe I learned about it on Youtube. It allows the paint to adhere to the FB better and you won't need many coats to get a nice look. As for the different paints, I always try them on a scrap piece of foam before I use it on a plane. I painted a plane once and it melted really bad.
