Tamiya Gloss Coating Varnish

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Has anyone used this product before? https://www.wahwahmodelshop.com/product/tamiya-87151-gloss-coating-varnish/

I believe it is something similar to the glaze they use on real cars. I have seen a couple of examples on facebook, but not a lot of detailed info on the internet in general.

 

Thanks

Mike

I was not aware Tamiya even had this product.  Very curious as well to see responses from anyone who has has used it.

Well, after a little gentle research on Google (Scalemates, RC World), I’ve discovered that it is an acrylic varnish. Suggests to me it’s very similar to Future floor finish. In a smaller bottle!😁

Tamiya's X22 clear is pretty good stuff. Leaves a really nice shine.

I decided to buy this product. This is not a paint. You apply it with a cloth, but there is very little info even on the instructions. As you can see the result on the roof is pretty good, but it was already shiny so probably not a huge difference.
