Does anyone use Tamiya PS polycarbonate paints on styrene models? They say very specifically that they are not for use on plastic models, but i do seem to recall someone on here posting a build that they used it on.

Wanting to do some Bobby Hamilton Country Time builds, and the PS line has the fluorescent yellow and pink.

They are dead flat as they are used on the inside of the clear bodies. I do not THINK they eat the plastic....just a rough finish.....IIRC!!!

I use the poly paint years ago on one of my models. Dries dead flat needs a gloss coat used over a primer, color was nice. I was using the pink. Also years ago Pactra made a color called blue dust was a perfect match for the Alka Seltzer blue. Never bought it but have seen it used same as above but color was dead on.

18,

i did the 1993 Greg Sacks T-bird with the poly spray and it didnt hurt a thing. in fact it turned out great! it is very neon and spot on! it does dry very flat, so be prepared to use a few coats of clear. but i was happy with mine overall.

Was that the pink or yellow one? I had some concerns about the pink being “too pink” versus what the pictures showed, which seemed a bit deeper but still fluorescent.

18,

sorry, i guess i shouldve have been more specific. yes i did the PS yellow 93
t-bird not the pink. i did not use a white base coat under the neon yellow, i just went straight white primer and then onto the PS yellow then onto about 3 coats of tamiya clear. it could probably have came out better as far as less dull but i am happy with the results for just a shelfer for my collection.
