no need to point out making sure the aluminium ( I spelled it the British way) needs to be clean and dry. Otherwise, easy to use. 

My personal problem is saying "That looks very good and smooth! Imagine what one more coat will do!" and ending up with a run.

I would also think that latex on metal would not handle scuffing and such. If it is not in an area that sees much wear, latex seems fine.

Latex not holding up well on aluminum and fuel is good to know; thanks!  On the aluminum parts covered with latex, did you top coat those areas with any type of clear? (polyurethane or ...?)

I am familiar with runs; painted the fin and rudder Kelly Green; very pretty but it was so dark I thought boy that is nice. Next day noticed a huge run at the lower corner; so after much sanding and repainting its okay. Older eyes don't see things as well any more.

Yep I have now Chris. I am starting to paint the aluminium cowlings and metal parts now. Fuselage and tail surfaces are all done, painted, assembled and cables adjusted. Wings have primer on them (done just before the fires) but still need more. Now its too cold so may be the first spring task. Some sort of engine cowling has to be done yet..
