100ml Can of Tamiya TS-51 Telefonic Blue 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.
This is a really beautiful blue and it lays out smooth and even, with no metallic blotchiness. Just be aware that the color is much deeper and darker than the color swatch would lead you to believe. It is a really true blue, almost giving a hint of a purple cast depending on the lighting, but with a really clean and brilliant blue highlight on curves. It will really make your model pop. I used it on an AMT '67 Chevy Impala 427 SS and got compliments on the color. It's somewhat reminiscent of GM's Deepwater Blue from that year, but with a little more current looking pop to the color.
