100ml Can of Tamiya TS-37 Lavender Synthetic Lacquer Paint.
These cans of spray paint are extremely useful for painting large surfaces. The paint is a synthetic lacquer that cures in a short period of time. Each can contains 100ml of paint, which is enough to fully cover 2 or 3, 1/24 scale sized car bodies. Tamiya spray paints are not affected by acrylic or enamel paints. Therefore, following the painting of the entire assembly, details can be added or picked out using enamel and/or acrylic paints. By combining three different paints, the decoration of plastic models will become simpler and more effective.
These Tamiya paints are superbly thin (about 1 mil thick) and when applied correctly and carefully, they dry very quickly and are super glass smooth; very little need for polishing (just use a little Novus #2 and apply decals, then apply Future over that...excellent finish). By far much better than the old candy-enamels we used as kids.
BUT...!....BEWARE. DO NOT follow the color swatches that are posted in the TS pdf files, nor those on this (and many others) website because they are way off. I needed an exact match of purple and this swatch was exactly the right color, however the actual paint dried much darker and almost had a purple red/maroon hue to it, so be very careful. If possible, search the internet for photos of the caps, as they are somewhat (but not always) closer.
Secondly, you must use these with excellent ventilation, or outdoors, and with a respirator mask. The fumes are horrific and carcinogenic.
