      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Tamiya Silver Leaf

2 posts in this topic

Posted

My current project is a '67 Charger weekend warrior. I wanted to duplicate an option that Chrysler offered that year- "Hand-rubbed" silver for $17.00- so I have painted it with Tamiya Silver Leaf Ts-30. It's nice, smooth and lusterous, but it's not shiny. I don't want a showcar gloss. Any suggestions on how to give the silver a shine without making it too glossy?

I love Tamiya's TS-30...nice finish

but for a rubbed silver look you may want to try Testors Metalizer "Stainless Steel" (Spray Can)

If you let it dry completely (usually 2 - 4 hours) it can be rubbed to a really nice polished sheen

good luck
