Tamiya Smoke Spray

In the April issue of Scale Auto Enthusiast, in Andy Kellock's Bench Racer Article on page 12, Andy describes the success he is having using Tamiya Smoke to add depth and tone to model kit chrome. Most kit chrome out of the box, particularly the wheels, has a toylike look. Kellock says, "simply brushing with Tamiya Smoke not only adds depth, but also tones down the toylike chrome finish into something that looks more like metal." You can see the before and after effect in the picture rotation. The wheel on the right has the Tamiya Smoke applied.

Another cool application for this color is to tint windows. Check out the Toyota Pickup we found on Randy Ayers Nascar Modeling Forum. This model has Tamiya Smoke TS71 applied to every window except the windshield. The key to using this is to mask the outer windows and spray the inner windows for an authentic tinted glass look. One coat gives a light tinting and you can proceed with more coats to make it as dark as you wish. We encourage our customers to participate in online Model Car Forums as these are great places to pick up tips and ask for advice. This forum can be reached at

Of course, as with all paint and finish applications, it is critical to have a clean painting surface clear of all mold release and fingerprint residue.

These cans of spray paint are extremely useful for painting large surfaces. The paint is made up of a synthetic acrylic 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 plastic model car bodies. Tamiya spray paints are not affected by acrylic or enamel paints. They may be applied over a cured spray painted surface.
