About the Tamiya Paint Database

The Tamiya Paint Database was created as a way to demonstrate the Microsoft FrontPage Access Database Wizard back in the spring of 2000. Originally, anyone could add formulas to the database, and for a while, all was good. Sadly, much time was later required to weed out false entries, and after a while, the DB was taken down.  Now it has been restored and more mixes have been added. 

While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the mixes listed, we cannot test them all. That said, we recommend that you test your own small sample before making a batch large enough to paint a 1/24 scale aircraft. If you do find an error in a formula, please contact us
