    iirc, the Tamiyas i use are laquers.
    In which case, hell yes stick with laquers.

    ^ agreed, I'd stick with tamiya also. In my experience it seems to bond better than enamels.

    Tamiya paints are awesome, I painted my Universe Thundercracker
    with some and the paint can't be scratched off!!

    needless to say I was bouncing off the walls from the results......
    Ok not literally.....
    but when a figure needs a full repaint, Tamiya is my choice
