I picked up 2 new, I think, Tamiya rattle can metals....

In spite of your injunction, yes, you're slow :rofl: !

AS-12 is also very good for "Speed Silver" IMHO.

PS: and, as usual with Tamiya rattle cans, I prefer to use them through the AB, after decanting. You get a better control of the flow than straight out of the rattle can.

The TS-83 is not that old, released maybe 3 or 4 years ago with a gold, and then a little later on also some titanium versions of same.

The AS-12 is perhaps 2 decades old now, is part of their Aircraft specific range, and goes down much smoother than their silver leaf spray can; which is a better choice if you're attempting to impart weathering or a wash into the surface colour.

Like Hubert I always decant the AS-12 as you've a lot more control through the AB. It's a great base coat for chipping as it sets like a rock and looks like a slightly faded bare metal.
