My newly restored Tamiya Blackfoot.  The body was a mess when I got it.  I gave it a fresh look.

Thanks.  Yes, I used Tamiya TS paint.

The body had multiple paint coats and looks to be brushed on....

I decided to wet sand and get it as smooth as I possibly can and then paint with Tamiya TS paint follow by TS clear.

Another New Paint Job.  The body is a Tamiya Super Blackfoot from approx early 1990's and the chassis is the original 1986 Blackfoot.

I used Tamiya TS brown and gold.
