Hello there Tamiya members,

At long last I have managed to buy a brand new Tamiya rally cockpit for only 5.00 ! ! !
Does any one know what paint and primer I need to paint it with? :blink:

Thankyou for your time and advice,

Rally Man. ;)

p.s I said only Professional help because I don't want to melt my cockpit with the wrong paint, I don't mean to offend anyone.

I've only ever used Tamiya Acrylics but any TS spray will be fine, they are all plastic compatible.

Hi,
I've painted a few Group C cockpits and noticed its definately wroth spraying with the Primer first as (1) helps the paint stick better (2) gives a more even paint look as the light doesnt come through the thin plastic and give an uneven paint look ;) Once you've dont that its just like painting any plastic model kit and I also use the Tamiya paints.
