Natural Metal Made Easy…

A video guide to using Tamiya aerosols, to create fool-proof finishes…


Several days ago, there was a discussion on Hyperscale concerning the use of Tamiya Aerosols to create natural metal finishes. As this is my preferred method to paint this ‘finish’, I thought I would create a new video that shows exactly how I go about using their paints, how to decant the colours for airbrushing and a bunch of other tips and ideas needed to create what is often a tricky paint job!

I’m using these paints and ideas on the T-33 that you can see here, so this will be a timely guide as to what I do whenever the need not to paint an aircraft(!), comes up.

This then is my new video – I hope that you like it!

    Thanks for posting this. I’ve never been happy with my natural metal finishes, and tend to avoid them because of it. I’m definitely giving this method a try.
