Re: Paint question (acrylic)
hello, Tamiys X20A thinner dopes the job well! as you know, you dont need to thin Tamiya much at all, so the 250ml bottle will last a very long time
also, while you are at it, pick up some of tamiya's "paint retarder" this will also help, with brushing too.. I have used mission models and even valejo and I prefer tamiya at this point, tamiya will go directly to plastic in most cases i have found and stay very well while the other you will have to prime to get a chance at good adhesion.the only downfall to tamiya is that their color selection isnt the best and they for some reason have never done any of the FS colors, hmm, IDK..Jay
I'm getting a little tired of Tamiya paint clogging my a-brush....tried simple water, but watered down too much; tried thinner (lacquer) but drys out the paint as it leaves the tip.
So, I'm thinking of changing brands after a long time use and upgrading my brand....
I like acrylic paints...LOVED using Model Masters but .... ...it doesn't exist anymore.
So, HOW is Mission Model paints, or True Color paints for those who made the switch. How is it as a brushable and air-brush paint jobs??
Maybe on a different question, Who here has switched from Tamiya to another acrylic paint
I would like a WIDE variety of colors for not just ships, but planes, tanks, Indy-cars, Glossy paints as well as Matt paints.
Thanks for your time.
