Hello,
this is my first post on forum and my third tank in 1/72. I have got few problems with tiger ,but it's fantastic. I build it without zimmerit, becuase tiger is my traning tank for airbrush , weathering and damage by using in fight. That's all :D

Hi ,
i will use German Grey from Valejjo ,but I'm affraid of Vallejo paint ,becuase it may stop up my airbrush :/

Jacob,

That sounds good. Don't be afraid of using Vallejo. I paint mostly using acrylics and Vallejo paints are superb when airbrushed. The thing to remember is to thin them down at least 60% paint and 40% thinner ( for thinner I use a mixture of 50% water and 50% Isopropil alcohol), and to give it mutiple thin coats instead of one thick one.

I hope this helps

why grey? grey was early color...

David Diaz
i have big problems with my vallejos... if i thin them more than 10% they just form tinny drops on surface, just don't cover anything... i use distilled water cause i read that vallejos and alcohol are no go

KuKŁiNsKi becuase it's easy camouflage -fantastic colour to traning airbrushing

That can happen to any paint if you thin it way too much, the tiny drops could be due to several things, first you may be using too much pressure or you are holding your airbrush too close. Regarding the alcohol compatibility issue, well, you've seen my work and I always use alcohol / water mix to dilute the paint. I have never had an issue.

Hi Jacob

Very brave of you in 1/72nd scale, I always use Vallejo paints and where possible use the Vallejo AIR for air brushing and find these to be superb. Model colour I thin either with pure water (Distilled if Possible) or with Vallejo acrylic thinners, no trouble at all.
