    I'd say the polycarbonate (which I've never heard of) because the lacqure is lacqure paint.

    Your question is kinda misleading. The three paints most of us use are Acrylics, Enamels, and Laquers.

    All the Tamiya spray paints I have used are laquers, I don't think they make an enamel.

    hope that helps.

    Tamiya spray is always laquer. The Polycarbonate spray is for polycarbonate, not from polycarbonate.

    Well, I've never had problems with tamiya's sprays. Just make sure that you don't put a really heavy coat on, because you'll end up with drips, runs, and other imperfections as well. There's a really good tutorial by ttt in the tutorials and how to's section. I thought one of the above posts had it but I guess not.
