    Stunning car! Ordered TS8 before seeing this. Will get some TS86 as well. I may need to build some more shelving dedicated to rattle cans. 😄

    As an aside, I’m painting a Porsche 904 with metallic silver and the paint going to end up costing more than the body shell. Does Tamiya use real silver flakes?

    Close as I could get. Used half dozen different reds, white/grey/black/red primers. TS86 with grey primer looked best...to me anyways. Picture doesn’t do it justice, it is stunning!

    That looks dead-on to match the 1:1.

    I used TS-86 Pure Red over a grey primer on this Thunderslot. Pattos decals.

    Thanks. I used the dark base coat technique on my Mazda to match their soul red color using Tamiya mica red.

    That is a good idea Way

    Tamiya paints allow you a wide range of finish colors and shades by manipulating the base coat or primer color. Test by spraying white, gray, red, then black primers on a sheet of plastic. Then spray the Italian Red over all and pick what you want.

    Surtees 1966 LolaT70 color question

    Looking for help matching John Surtees’s 1966 Can-Am series winning LolaT70. I use Tamiya TS rattle cans and am looking at the Italian red and the darker metallic red. In the pics I’ve looked at it looks darker than Italian red but can’t tell if it is plain or metallic. Any suggestions?
    I love the white chevron-racing stripe of the #7 car.
    Thanks, Mike
