Is this outlandishly priced kit going to be your first build as a new person to the hobby?Thank you guys, really helpful. I'm on a fixed budget and after I pay the outlandishly high cost for my model aircraft kit, I need to find a really cost effective paint. I really only do Miliyary jet kits so my need for 100s of colors isn't there, maybe 20 at most Lol.
First, there's no stupid question, except the one that goes unasked. Or, if you ask the same question over and over again. That indicates a deeper problem.Ok What's the difference between like let's say AK or Taymia Acrylic and going to the local paint store and getting a quart from there? Yes I know stupid, but hay I'm a newb!
I use tap water, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from using distilled water. Also, I don't use any other additives, like a retarder. I'll second WJB, I thin it to the consistency of whole milk.What do you guys use to thin Americana paints for airbrushing? I have a collection of Delta Ceramcoat paints I began accumulating 15+ years ago, but these are useless with an airbrush...

For PappyVanWinkle, I too am curious what "outlandishly" expensive kit you are wanting to build. It's okay to be a noob, but for someone considering buying a bucket of latex paint to use on a 72nd scale aircraft or something, it says quite a lot about your noobishness---which is fine, but you really ought to build up your skills on a cheap, $10 Airfix kit or something before screwing up a $70 Great Wall Hobby kit and getting burned out and quitting the hobby.
