Is the drought over? My local hobby shop guy said he is expecting 100 cans of Tamiya spray paint (TS series) this Thursday.

The three Hobbytown stores in my area (about a 40 mile radius) restocked last fall sometime. Note that Tamiya has discontinued a few shades too.

I actually ordered several cans of Tamiya's TS-45 Pearl White last week and they just arrived in this morning's mail. (For my 1/350 PL Enterprise Refit kit.) I'm glad to see them finally back in stock.

Would Testors Flat Clear be a problem to apply after using Tamiya TS- colors?

I have used Testors Dullcoat spray for decades. I don't think yellowing is an issues UNLESS...

1) you are putting it on a white model where the yellowing will be noticable

2) you spray it on very thick and let it puddle up. I can yellow if it builds up in thick drips

But for every day normal use and use on darker paint jobs it works fine.

Unfortunately the paint color of choice is gonna be white.
Is there anything out there that'll work???

Future mixed with Tamiya Flat Base or Tamiya Clear Gloss mixed with Tamiya Flat Base work fine. You can adjust the amount of Flat Base to make a satin or flat finish.

Poly Scale has clear flat and gloss acrylic finishes. Humbrol Clear Flat and Gloss are also good (in the big jars not the cans). Gunze has some good clear sprays as well. Testors has their Acryl line of clear flat and gloss overcoats too.

You can believe whatever you want.
I never said it couldn't or didnt yellow. But its not a huge issue unless you are building a white model or glop it on thick. Period. Its not believing its KNOWING from use and experience with the product since the 70s.

Not clear coating a white model is not a guarantee that it will not yellow anyway. Testors gloss white can turn yellow on its own.
