Sorry, this item is out of stock

This retarder is perfect for use when brush-painting lacquer paints or to add to your airbrush cup if you're spraying in warm and hot conditions.  It slows the drying process, helping eliminate surface imperfections from brush bristles and stopping tip dry on the airbrush, giving a smooth and lustrous finish.  Can be used up to a ratio of 1:10 (retarder:paint) when mixing.


The Tamiya Colour range of quality paints is designed specifically for modelling use and has long helped modellers achieve the perfect finish on their scale masterpieces.

Now, existing Tamiya Colour bottled acrylic paints, plus the lacquer spray paints are joined by the new Lacquer Paint line of bottled Tamiya Colours.

Use them as your needs require: airbrush large areas, or pick out fine details.

With a tough membrane and swift overall drying times - but slow initial drying to allow a beautiful un-blemished finish.

We are sure they will become an essential item in your modelling armoury.

• Gloss and matt colours can be applied directly to model kit plastic
• Quick drying time
• Fabulous when airbrushed, and can also be applied by paint brush to detail areas
• Can be used in a similar way to Tamiya’s X and XF line of acrylics
• Weathering colour washes and dry brushing can be applied over the dried Lacquer Paint
• Once dry, can be safely over-painted with acrylics, enamels and other model paints

droplets to merge on the surface of the model for a smoother finish

• Constantly expanding range of colours for military & civilian subjects
• Ultra-high Tamiya quality
