    Tamiya panel line accent with Mr superclear topcoat?

    Post by OrangePla on Wed 04 Feb 2015, 9:00 pm

    Guys, I need help on this. Will using Mr. Super Clear Spray UV Cut (Flat) on the Tamiya panel line accent colour have any adverse effect on the panel line ink?

    From What I've read online the panel line ink is enamel.


    And the topcoat for this is lacquer based.


    Based on the naritafamily.com web, it states that lacquer and enamel cannot act as a overcoat on enamel?


    Does this mean that I should not apply mr superclear topcoat over the tamiya panel line, since there will be undesirable effects?

    For more information, I will just be doing panel lining on the bare plastic itself.

    Can anyone share their knowledge and experience with me? Thanks.

    I am quite sure there would not be any problem. Lacquer will cover the enamel nicely. Tried multiple times, only not with this UV one.

    To be 100% sure, you can also use a waste runner plastic and apply the enamel first. Then spray using the UV top coat and observe the effect.

    I've been using the Tamiya panel line and top coated with lacquer and no problems so far, I dun think there is a difference with UV cut and the normal top coat but I might be wrong.
