Just wondering if I pre-mix a few tamiya colors (metalics mainly) 50/50 with Tamiya Lacquery thinner, what if any shelf life I can expect. Has anyone experiemented with this?

You thinned acrylic with lacquer thinner?  I would think that would not do well . I have not used Tamiya acrylics myself but they usually thin with water or alcohol don't they,?

Lacquer thinner works great with Tamiya acrylics.  I can't answer the first question because I only mix what I need to spray each time.

I have never mixed acrylic with thinner for long term storage.  I always mix what I need for the build at hand.  It's simplier that way and takes up less space in my already crowded shop.
