Tamiya Snow Effect
« on: April 05, 2018, 07:08:03 pm »
Hey all,

I have the following 2 products incoming for a custom base for my Bandai AT-ST and AT-AT.  I've seen these two products referenced before, but I've not found any good explanation as to what the difference is between them.  Does anyone have any experience with either or both of these?  What's the difference?

Tamiya Snow Effect https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004AS4FI6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Tamiya Powder Snow Effect  https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0042ISUMQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

....also, does one still apply a clear coat to these products one they are applied?  I'm assuming so -but just checking!

Thanks!

Cheers!

The Snow Effect has larger clumps for bigger deposits of snow and the Powder Snow effects has smaller clumps for finer snow.

About ready to start using this stuff.  I'm going to run a small test - but it is recommend to apply a flat coat over this stuff once it cures or should I leave it alone?  Thoughts?

Thanks all!

Cheers!
