Model kits make great gifts - no matter if you are young or old !









While Tamiya is known for its highly details model kits, they're also known for their model hobby paints as well.

The new synthetic lacquer spray paints work very well, especially on Tamiya plastic kits.

The plastic that tamiya uses in their model kits is ultra smooth, my guess is because of their high end polishing process' when they make a mold for a kit.

Their plastic also seems to be stiffer (not soft, like some other model companies do, such as the older AMT models).

The combination of these two things, in my eyes, helps their paints to give you a fanastic paint job on your model.

One thing I've noticed through my may years of using their paint is that some colors work extremely well, but some of them can be quite thin.

So as with any model paint, it's always prudent to test your paint first (white plastic spoons are cheap and good to use).



Popular paints from Tamiya.

Tamiya TS spray series paints are a synthetic lacquer that dry in just minutes and cure faster than traditional enamel paints. These are especially formulated to work on plastic model kits.

As always, test your paints before applying it to your final model !

The easiest way to test paints is to shoot them on cheap, white
plastic eating spoons
. Paint them and label them.

Then you know what the color looks like in the future.
