    found this stuff at a local hobby/art store type place. it's like 5 bucks for a 100ml can.

    anyone have any experience with this stuff? i'm going to get one next week probably and test it out.

    looks like a waste to me. 5 bucks per can? its like 2 bucks for 1 regular sized can of like any other brand. and if you're gunna buy it for its size, just take a regular can of paint and fill it into an axe can.

    i think its a waste, dont waste your money.

    but if you're going to rack like 20 of them, then good call.

    i use it on my rc car body shells is polycarbonate paint....ive never used it on for painting anything other than car shells....and i wouldnt recommend it, its expensive and will probably do no better than a cheap can of piss you get in dollar/pound stores....

    It's model paint...Good for plastic...nothing else. It's not made to cover, nor to last outdoors. Stick to all-purpose paint.

    mini cans are never worth anything other than putting in your pocket. the color might be good but you can get a normal can of rusto for 2$ less

    feelin the nugs in your sig^

    I build models and I can honestly say that tamiya paint is incredible. It's built to bond to plastic so it will stick for a while, the only thing is that the cans are so expensive and small. Pocket size though, know what I mean?
