    yep. acrylics will work. but if you want to match an enamel, paint it with acrylic first (primer) then paint your enamel over the acrylic.

    Tamiya *might* work, it's got great bonding material but i only know it's effect on hard plastics.

    it's a thinner based paint - closer to an enamel.
    You'll need something water based.

    Easy way to know - if it says "clean up with soap & water" it's water based.
