Hi, simple question.. I have used some Tamiya Spray Can with no problem so far.. but I want to know if Bright color are easy to work with ? (ie: Yellow Orrage etc..) I used some Testor, model Master and even airbrushed some Bright color (mainly Yellow) and I always got 2 or 3 hours of sanding after :D

Does Tamiya Orage and Yellow Spray can are better ?

Thanks

All Tamiya TS paints are very consistant in the way they spray and settle on the model. All are very smooth!:)

I agree, all TS paint are great, very consistent, and very easy to apply if you follow the instructions.

$30?
For how many cans?
They are $4.50 per can here in TX.
Even cheaper on eBay. I got 6 cans for $15.

Alex,
Vric is in Canada, so I think he is talking in Canadian $'s ;)
I admit that it gets confusing.....too many different $'s to worry about.

Oh, bright colors are very easy. I painted a Skyline lime green last summer, it turned out great.

My store charges $5.75 per can, so don't feel too bad.

If you follow the instructions (heat up can, shake for 2 minutes, mist coat first, white primer etc.) it should come out great.

White Primer.. this is an other thing my Hobby Store dont have

Is it ok if I use Flat White color insted ?

As long as it's lacquer based, it'll be ok. Also if the body is molded in white, you might be ableto get away without using primer. You must use white though since you are spraying yellow, which is semi translucent.
