To start a disclaimer: I'm not sure this goes here, but I can't think where it would go :( feel free to boot it wherever it belongs dear mods :eek:k:

So I plan to 'upgrade' my modelling loadout, including buying a long awaited airbrush

However I haven't been able to properly lock down a guide or review or whatever on which paints are best for what.
I think I've settled on Vallejo model air, as I've heard they can be sprayed straight out of the airbrush without thinning (some say yes thinning :scratchhead: ) and they can be used with brushes equally well
Are both these facts true?
Are there any better paint ranges?
Anything else I may have missed?

Thanks for any help :victory:

I'm at that stage when all my paints seem to be done or nearly done as is :p my wall mounted shopping list of paints is about 15 long :)
From what I've seen, the model air range seems pretty extensive, certainly got every colour I can see needing in the foreseeable future :)

About thinning, do you need the air brush for optimum results? Or does distilled water work just as well? Would tap water be acceptable? Even for short term?
Again I find mixed answers everywhere ranging from tap water is fine, to if you you anything by the right thinner the world implodes :cray:

Sounds good, distiller water is like an 8h the price so I'd risk it anyway :p
On a related note, is proper cleaner needed? Or does water work there as well
