  1. Hello, I have been trying with differents paints for a while, now I want to use acrylic paints because smell problems. Which one you recommend ? I am planning to paint a Mig 15 UTI in the Iraq scheme.
  2. A few months ago I went and bought the entire RLM colour range from Mr Paint. These are a lacquer based acrylic paints that come pre mixed in glass bottles for airbrushing only, similar to Alclad. I have only just had the chance to try them out on a complete kit and thought I'd let you all know that they are superb paints to use. I used Mr Paint's white primer as a base and it went on very smoothly and only required a light buff with an old cotton T shirt (to remove the bits of dust I'd managed to miss) to prepare it for the top coat colours. The colours I've used so far are RLM02, 04, 70 and 71 along with some of their basic white and black. All colours went on super smoothly with good coverage, even the 04 Yellow, and they all dried very quickly to a semi gloss finish (except the basic black and white). They were touch dry to a very smooth finish within an hour but I did wait for several hours before applying masking tape just in case they hadn't fully cured. The masking tape didn't lift any paint on removal and didn't mark the paint at all. I have also discovered that Gunze's Mr Color Thinners will work with this brand of paint if required, which is handy, if like me, you have a lot of this stuff already. I'm very impressed so far with these paints and they will possibly even replace my current favourite paint, Mr Color/Hobby from Gunze. Today I will be spraying on a coat of Mr Paint's super Clear Gloss for decaling and weathering onto so I'll see how that goes. Duncan B
  3. Can anyone tell me if there is anything I can use to remove Tamiya and/or Games workshop acrylic paints from models once it has cured? I have use Tesco Kitchen Cleaner (with bleach) to successfully remove Humbrol enamels with positive results and wondered if there is an equivalent product or substance which will work on acrylics? Thanks
