  1. No..use Tamiya X 22 in the bottle. It's acrylic.
  2. I use Tamiya NATO black. It's not as brown as the tire black but not too black. If that makes sense.
  3. I use Stynlerez for my armor build, makes for great shadow effects.
  4. I bought a spray can of Mr Hobby surface primer 1000 at Hobby Lobby the other day and I really like it. It might be better than the Tamiya, covers better and levels out beautifully when dry. Also seems to be tougher.
  5. At least the Tamiya cleaned up my cutting mat. BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH super is difficult if not impossible to clean up.
  6. I finished up what I thought was a really nice 32 ford 5 window and noticed ugly blob of cement on the rear window. After exausting my curse word vocabulary I printed out a little For Sale sign and stuck it over the blob. However some screw ups are not fixable. I knocked over a bottle of Tamiya extra thin cement on a sheet of decals once. It was ugly.
  7. Maybe it's just me but those cable ends look way out of scale.
  8. I know with the Model Master ultra gloss you have to really spray bomb things to get a decent shine. Of course then you have a model that looks like you dunked it into a can of paint. I'd go with the Tamiya clear.
  9. Since they have discontinued the Model Master paint, wonder if they'll do the same with the cement?
  10. Tamiya has released a line of lacquer paints (LP) which should be available in the US by the end of March. It looks great in the videos I've seen. Dries fast and very tough finish. I'm going to have to try it, assuming my local hobby shop carries it. Ok by the way, looks like the color selection is going to be a lot better than the acrylics complete with metal flakes.
  11. I just bought a can the other day because they didn't have any Tamiya. It seems to be almost identical to the Tamiya but seems to cover a little better. I like it.
