Have used all of the above over the years. Found the Tamiya sprays offer relatively poor value for money in terms of coverage when doing a full truck. Most will work fine with correct primer. If in any doubt trial it on a piece of sprue or unused part.

Thanks i have used halfords paint on my man thx cab but just wondered what people used im currently building a merc actros and i do like the black that tamiya have done theres in but i did also fancy a metailic green and a arden blue one need to buy more trucks i think. But im swaying more towards matt black so the chrome parts highlight well
