FINALLY! Tamiya lacquer paints in JARS!

Oh this is a dream come true for me! I believe I have suggested to Tamiya people in the past that they should release their lacquer spray paints in jars.

Oh, definite interest here... sometimes you just want something with more "bite" than acrylics, even over primer. And I'd like to finally get away from spray cans.

Excellent! I've been decanting their black TS-14 spray paint for years to use as a base coat for Alclad metalizers, but now that I can get it in jars that'll be a thing of the past.

Yeah, the Tamiya spray gloss black is great. I did an Aoshima Knight Rider KITT model with it and it turned out fantastically. It applied much better than the Mr. Color gloss black spray can.
