Hello my friends !

I need your help and had some questions about the testor spraycans.

My friend (a modeldealer) in austria wants to import the spraycan program from testors. i think he is the first person who do this in europe.
this cost´s a lot of money and so he ask me about the quality

from the sprays. Are the acryl based or enamel? What clear coat is possible to spray about this color? are this colors the same quality how the

tamiya ts sprays?

Whats about the Sand Texture Coatings and Vinyl Effect Coatings? Are they used for roofs???

You see a lot of questions, but i hope you can help us for the import !

many greets from austria

He would do best to try and get just the Lacquer sprays by Testor's. The Custom lacquer line where some of the colors mimic actual desired 1:1 factory colors like Grabber Green etc. and the one coat line with some really nice colors like Revving Red & Inca Gold. If he gets the enamels(solvent based) he should also keep some dehydrators in stock. ;) I'm sure that there will be plenty of opinions about Testor's vs Tamiya sprays. IMHO BOTH company's missed the mark by not offering their sprays in bottles,considering both offer airbrushes. ;)

Mike is on the money... Testor's Lacquer Spray Can are the best. Specially the new One Touch line that Testor brought out. The paints I use for all of my model cars are from Testor or Tamiya.
