|Crimson Shadow||To ask a dumb question, if using windex to thin the paint, it doesn't add a blue tint to the paint?|

I've used the GW model. And the paint bottle that comes with it is approx 50/50 water and paint per their description. I've had issues with it clogging though, so you might want to thin it more. Or based on his post, follow Damned Fist's mix as it sounds more knowledgable.
Good luck. When you can get the base color done for a whole squad in like 90 seconds, it's a beautiful thing.

I use GW paints in my airbrushes (Including Foundations) and I recommend using the following recipe for your reducer;
1 part rubbing alcohol
1 part glass cleaner (or 'flow aid' if you want to spend the money)
4 parts water.
Thin your paints at least 1 to 1 with the reducer and you should have no problems.

Sweet, Edd told me of its compressor, so no wasting money on useless cans of prollelant for you.... *grumbles*
GW paints, being acrylic based would be finer with water, it would only be if they are Oils that you would need some type of thinner... (Mr Phillips` lectures come in handy for once!)
Ratio`s? I dunno... obv for foundation they would be higher, but again my usefulness has its bounds...

Nope im using my own one Bob, just got it today, and i know you need to thin it down, im just asking what with thats all xD
Thanks for the link, but now i need to figure out how much water i need to use, im guessing 50/50.

This generally explains that of the GW model, which Im sure could be used towards none-gw makes (Im guessing your using Edds?)
I have little experience towards this, though do hope to find more about it, as I too wish to spray my own models, before successive layers of drybrushing...
