    Yo dudes and dudettes! I found a tiny little "mum and dad" style model shop near me who only sell this brand of paint. They are acrylics and they come pre-thinned and ready for the airbrush. Not much as far as metallics go or pearls or stuff like that but they might be good for basic airbrush work and shading and such. I was just wondering if anybody here had any experiance with them? If so are they any good? If they are id much rather go to the little store and buy their products rather than go to the big evil franchise store up the road and buy their shit which is more expensive to boot.
    Heres a link to their site...i think they are from spain but the sites in english. Let me know if you know anything would ya?
    Thankaroony!

    The air line from vallejo is pretty bad, it's prethinned and has less resin and binders so it scratches pretty easy. If you want vallejo, the game line of paints is the very beat acrylics I have ever used.

    I really wish my local hobby shop had these. I like Games Workshop paints a lot, and I've read that Vallejo's game line are basically better (and less expensive) versions of Games Workshop.
