    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

Just saw this on a model airplane board. This particular page seems to be about military and/or general colors, but let's home some nice car-usable colors won't be far behind. I'll be a customer!

This was brought up on another model car board...apparently the bottled colors will correspond with colors in the rattle-can line.  They'll supposedly come in bunches of fifteen colors at a time...

But still need to go through US evaluation.  So there will be a several month lag for availability here.

It is my understanding that chemicals and paints (solvent based items) have to pass the stringent California labeling and content rules in order to be sold in the US. Hopefully Tamiya will see to it to bring these here, would definitely be of interest to many!

I'm doubtful. Look how long it took to get TS-13 (gloss) back. And you can no longer get their relatively new Pink Surfacer in the States anymore.
