can anybody give me a brake down of colours in tamya if thats possible many thanks AGAIN!!!!!!
Tamiya 1/350 DKM Tirpitz, reviewed by Kevin Krueger among others. Good luck with the model. Cheers Derek
If so, and if he has had no experience with an A/B, I strongly recommend he paints it by hand. If he does, as Derek points rightly states, avoid Tamiya acrylics at all costs.....
Get him some Vallejo Model Colour ( John on here has these) they are great for large areas such as the hull and deck of the Tirpitz. Thinned down first with water mind!
Here are the Colours for the Kriegsmarine range: https://www.whiteensignmodels.com/c/Kriegsmarine+Colours/50/1/
Conversely I've had unsatisfactory results spraying and brush painting vallejo. I guess it's different for everyone but that's my experience with them. The only time I won't use tamiya is for gloss finishes as the paint doesn't stay wet long enough, for gloss I use enamel..
My point was that if John's dad is building and painting 'Tirpitz' and he has had no experience of a/b.'s, then he would possibly be safer brush painting anyway.....
and cheers derek for the help with the links your star
and as its for my dad i think im might go with the enamels its probably what he used all them years ago when he built as you stated ron its all by hand he doesn't even now what an ab is
thanks again for the help and many answers you were all on mark
