    Have used both acrylics with a brush, I like 'em both!

    Testors Metalizers for airbrush are real nice too, they are enamels. Don't think I have much experience using Tamiya enamels, except for spray cans.

    Actually, metalizers are laqures, as are tamiya's sprays. Actually, come to think of it, I don't think tamiya makes an enamel paint tbh. But I agree, they are both great, but if you go with tamiya, be sure to thin it out just a smidge with some like 70% alcohol.
