In general, do you see any difference on work time? Like car is quicker to finish vs Tank is takes longer to finish.

Tcoat... is there a modeling paint that matches the dark metallic grey colour used on the frs/brz? I thought of using the actual automotive paint but I’m afraid the metal flake in it is to large to look scale like.

There is but I donít have access to the chart right now. Tamiya makes spray cans for all the colours.

Cars take far longer. The gloss paint takes a pile of work.

I found Tamiya TS-64 Dark Mica Blue (85064) is listed for the DMG, but how would I turn a blue into a grey?
