    I've recently bought a small supply of different colors of Tamiya acrylic paints. In my swell of glee at my prospective customizing I failed to notice on the little jars that a thinner is needed, X-20A to be exact. My question for those familiar with Tamiya or thinning paint in general is how many parts thinner to paint do I use to get the desired thickness to spray through my airbrush?

    Sorry if this is covered in the exhaustive kitbash thread that I can no longer find. :)

    Half and Half worked good for me at 15 psi.
