Tamiya Paint Help

Recommended Posts

My nearest hobbyshop is 40+ miles away and I'm not in the mood to drive for about 2 hours, there and back, just for one bottle of paint.

 

I have X-5 Green and the instructions call for XF-5 Flat Green - are these the same colours just one is gloss and the other is flat? I've printed out both colour charts and XF-5 looks a bit more yellow.

 

Thanks,

 

Timmy

Tim,

 

I have never done this before,but I'm told it will work. Try adding a little Tamiya dull coat to the paint. It is suppose to bring it to a flat. I would mike up a small sample and test paint something. And for the record no there is a slight difference in the paint, but if you try mixing with another color you can get it real close.
