youpey added a topic in Model Building Questions and Answersclear coat on tamiya gloss aluminum paintI am painting my rx-7 the Tamiya Gloss aluminum (TS-17). This is the first time i am trying a silver paint. I did a test piece and it looks nice, however when i tried to clear coat the test piece (with tamiya clear) it lost its metallic look and looks just grey.
Can you not clear coat this color?

youpey added a topic in Generalhow to make black interiors niceI am going to be working on an 1993 Rx7 kit starting today and i have never been able to make a black interior look nice. For example, i use matte black for the the dash and the seats (to make the seats look like leather), but what would you do for the carpet and the door panels. probably matte black there as well, so it matches the dash.
But now it looks like i can build the entire interior and drop it in a bucket of matte black paint and call it finished. any ideas on how to mix it up a bit on modern cars to make it look realistic?

youpey added a topic in Generaltamiya mazda rx7 kit spirit r spoilerHi
I ordered the mazda rx7 kit from tamiya and it should be arriving tomorrow. I am looking for the spoiler in the second picture with the flat top (spirit R spoiler). does anyone know of a kit that has a similar spoiler that might fit or an aftermarket company that makes one?
this is the kit
the spoiler i am looking for is this one where it is flat and connects with 1 piece on the side (spirit R).
I would rather not buy the fujimi spirit r kit since they are costly and i already bought the tamiya one, but if this is the only one, then i guess i would buy it. I would definitely prefer an aftermarket over a whole kit if anyone knows where to find one, i would appreciate it
