    The Real Color Debacle

    Boy I'm going all out with the paint issues today. I pre-thin all Tamiya-like paint (including Hobby Aqueous) with either Tamiya thinner or Ultimate thinners, no problem. Did this with the AK stuff, and my word. First it seemed to stick to the inside of my pipette, so I was getting more or less a drop or two out of an amount drawn that would've sufficiently loaded the cup with my other paints, and lost the volume added via thinner as a result to the pipette. Then it wouldn't spray properly. It seemed to clog almost instantly and took a while to clean out. I added more thinner, deep cleaned my airbrush and tried again. Same result. I managed one go with it to do a touch up, but within moments it was back to clogging. I've no idea what else to do. All the ones I bought I thinned in the same manner with ultimate thinners (given the similarity to Tamiya and Gunze Acrylics). It wasn't just a dodgy pot either. I tried spraying the Clear Green and the result was exactly the same. In fact it only seemed to spray when I stuck in some distilled water to clean it out, forgot and test sprayed it on my clear plastic and it blew out with better, if wet coverage. It took an absolute age to spray the roof of a HUMVEE, almost twice as long as it might've taken to paint the entire thing with my other brands. I just don't get it. In fact at one point the NATO Green seemed to go blackish when I added more thinner, and after you shake it, and open it, there still appears to be separation at the top of the pain. I still haven't tried the other colours yet, so I don't know if the green is a dud or not. Contacted AKI, but much to my surprise they never got back to me. Some months ago I commented on their YouTube video about the paint whether I could use Ultimate thinners and they said I could. Anyone had a similar experience, or any pointers? At this point its beginning to look like UMP doesn't actually thin it at all. If so, I've cocked up 9 jars of paint. Gaz
