You are correct in thinking that it is a gloss paint as Tamiya's website describes it as: "A glossy shade of light blue."

The only thing that comes to my simple mind is how the paint was applied. By this I mean not applying a consistent wet coat. I have had instances where not applying a wet coat across an entire surface had similar results to what you described.

Questions • Spraying Tamiya TS-23

F1M Forums - Sun, 11/27/2022 - 10:31
Good day all. I have a question regarding Tamiya TS-23 light blue spray paint (rattle can). When testing the paint on white plastic spoons it dries to a "mottled" finish with gloss, simi-gloss and flat areas. Looks terrible. Can anyone provide any tips on why this is happening? I thought this was a gloss finish paint but perhaps not? Thanks for your help.

Maybe this is helpful for some upscaling in 1/20.

Here is a bit expensive way to get the decals: https://www.bluerace24.com/jordan-194-p ... -1-20.htmlI actually have this kit, unfortunately the white parts of the kit decals are badly yellowed, I thought I'd use the kit as a reference for my conversion of the Tamiya 191, I might end up getting two 194 decals if possible to replace the resin kit decals also.
Thx

Wanted • Panini 1/8 Ferrari F40LM Parts Search. HELP

F1M Forums - Sat, 11/26/2022 - 13:14
Good day

Through a lot of good luck and a fair amount of aggression, I have managed to buy 93-94 of the 100 packs of the F40LM and I live in the US, where it’s not for sale. And with the help of some very generous sellers, my cost is pretty good, however I am missing a handful of packs and I am wondering if anybody that is buying or selling any parts for this car can lend a hand? If so, please PM me and I will forward you the missing packs.

I am not missing the big parts, I’m just missing some small bits that I am sure will turn up on EBay at some point, but I thought I would ask this group for a hand.

Thank you

Sean

More information. They have confirmed the Ferrari 1/24th F1 collection starting in December 2022!!! This is the second series of F1 in 1/24th offered by Hachette IXO. I expect to see IXO also release some of these under their new 1/24th F1 line. Can't wait for the 1/24th Lemans winner collection to start also.

Questions • Decal 1/20 Jordan 194, where to get???

F1M Forums - Sat, 11/26/2022 - 10:45
Hi guys,
I am looking for some suggestions on where I might get decals for a Jordan 194, I don't think studio 27 ever did a set like they did some decal sets separately for conversion projects.
I did get a set of Jordan 194 from Pattos place a few years back, not good clarity at all and I just tried to use them but they are terrible to deal with, they absolutely refuse to soften at all, even with strong decal softener, so don't conform to curves, refuse to stick, in a word, 'useless' .
Is there somewhere else like Pattos that make decals that are good quality, I'm converting a Tamiya Jordan 191 to 194.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks.
