Dear plane builders, I'm looking for high quality acrylic metal/alu/chrome paints for the airbrush. What do you recommend ? Thanks a lot in advance chaps, I have ordered a P51 D Mustang with a shiny body and a blue nose.
Vallejo 71.062 Aluminum is my favorite, Guy. I had used that on my KC-97L and the F-47N from the Hawaii ANG.

I use mine 30% Vallejo thinner to 70% paint and that passes superbly thru my particular brush but other AB`s might prefer otherwise, a case of tweeking if necessary here and there but the 30/70 is a starting point for you....HTH
Guy I don' t think the Metal Color stuff needs thinner, but the Primer will. And maybe you should get some Flow Improver too, that stops the paint from drying in the AB nozzle.
That’s the main reason that I went back to Tamiya. The range of colours might not be as good but I just find them easier to use and more consistent in their results. It also helps that if I just need a couple of paints I can pop down to my local Hobby Craft.
