Oh that's it... :)

yup - Enamel doesn't go with lacquer.

Acrylic goes with lacquer as well... So you often have to use that for
handpainted jobs...

"Official" Gunge Sangyo colors are in enamel - so be careful...

I recently bought a spray paint of Flat topcoat from Gunze to cover my

mixing different brands of paint, as I'm used to Tamiya? Now I have two
more things to do this holiday break...restore the EX-S and Rick Dom

It's to do with the type of paint not the brand. Certain types of paint are
incompatible with each other namely lacquer, acrylic and enamel. I forget
which combinations are particularly disastrous but in the worst case
scenario one paint will 'eat' the other.
