Yes, I have heard/read about it but I have never, that I can remember, had a poor outcome because I shook the can. I think the possibility of a poor outcome from not shaking the can enough would be greater than the possibility of a poor outcome from shaking it.
Hi Mark. If your response was to my picture, thank you. The picture is over-exposed. I'm sitting here looking at the model and the red portion of the decals is a darker red. The blue is also darker than what shows in the picture.
I just run hot tap water into an old water pitcher. The cylindrical, tall, old fashioned one. I put the can of paint into the pitcher and leave it in there for a few minutes. I take the can out, shake the heck out of it, while at the same time running more hot water back into the pitcher. I do this two or three times until I feel the can of paint is uniformly warm.
This was the first Tamiya kit that I ever built. I think it is a very nice kit. I remember being amazed by several things. The fit of the parts, the perfect stance and the fact the tires/wheels fit in the wheel wells perfectly.
