Revell-Monogram paints
Posted by eajonesgue on Tuesday, December 02, 2003 4:43 PM
I received a R-M Plymouth Prowler kit 6667 as a gift and thought I would build it box stock. It came with three little containers of paint to be used on the model. The instructions say non-toxic water cleanup so I assume that they are some kind of acrylic.

Any suggestions whether I could use an airbrush with these paints? If so, what kind of thinner and what ratio.

Any help is appreciated

I see no rason you couldn't airbrush them. I would use either water or alcohol to thin them to the consistency of milk. I spray about 15-25 psi.

Do you have a screen to filter out chuncks from the paint. I tried airbrushing with the paint that came with a corvette kit and it clogged up the nozzle with chuncks of paint.

When doing it I used 2 parts water, 3 parts thinner

You should always strain your paint.

Better find an old model, some sprue, etc. and test each color before you try it on the model; no sense risking your prime project with a paint you're not sure about.
