Hubley Model

can you use regular spray paint on models???! help please!?

can you use regular spay paint on models like spary paint you get from home depot?

You can, but the paint coat will be pretty thick and may spoil some of the details of the model. The exception to this is something like a Hubley Model (These were die-cast cars that you filed all the flash off the pieces, then primed them and painted them like a real car. Hardware store paints work on them because they are actually metal.)
You might want to visit a local hobby shop and see if they have Testor's "Model Master" paint, or something by Tamiya. Both of these brands have the color ground up so it is really superfine, so a thin coat of paint looks good. No matter what, dark colors are harder to spray and get a nice finish than lighter colors. Gloss black will show every defect in the paint job, but yellow or orange will show nothing and look nice, depending on the vehicle.
The other suggestion I have for you is to check at the local hobby shop and see if there is a chapter of the "International Plastic Modelers Society" in your area. Normally they post when their meetings are and where they are held, and if you go, you can ask questions to some very highly skilled modelers. Also, if you put out the word that you are looking for a cheap airbrush, someone may have one they are willing to sell to you for $5 or $10, just to see that someone uses it. It will really improve your painting after you experiment with it for awhile.
