Tamiya Mini X-12 Gold Leaf Paint is a non-toxic, water soluble paint designed for painting plastic model kits. We have found that it works very well on our wooden model aircraft and boats too. Paints are produced in three finishes, however, not all colours are available in all finishes. Gloss paints provide good coverage and flat paints are truly matt. Translucent colours are excellent for use on clear plastics for applications such as indicators and brake lights on model cars. All of the Tamiya Acrylic paints can be brushed on undiluted or they can be thinned and used with an airbrush. Water clean up means that your brushes and equipment will last for ages. The 10ml tub has a screw cap for mess free use and will cover a very reasonable area - certainly there is enough to cover one of our model boats in a single colour.
