    Paint Thinner

    I recently discovered that thinner used in two pack hardener paints is much more mild and smooth for spraying and it has less chance of affecting undercoats and plastic

    Probably it is good for those still using enemels, but for those who changed to acrylics, especially those using Tamiya [which are not purely acrylics by the way] I recommend using Tamiya Laquer Thinner, 80% to 20% paint ... much better then ISO prop.

    NB - that the downside is the drying time which is longer ... but depends what one is working on, as it can be a benefit as well ...
