Mission Models Interior green 34151

Recommended Posts

What is a suitable thinner? Anything besides Mission Models own? How does their interior green compare to actual WWII Cockpit color?

I don’t use anything other than their own thinner with MMP.  I’d also recommend using their polymix as recommended.

You can read their FAQ.

Q: CAN I THIN MMP PAINT WITH ALTERNATIVE THINNERS:  NO

A: Yes and No. You can thin MMP with water however it must be distilled. DO NOT use tap water. Tap water contains chemicals , minerals and rust that will affect your finish. 

B:  DO NOT ever thin with Glass Cleaner, wiper fluid, lighter fluid, alcohol, Lacquer thinner etc. You will destroy the paint by contamination, ruin your finish and the high performance properties of the paint.  This includes Windex which includes alcohol and ammonia. You will destroy the paint.  This also includes during color changes.  Please clean your airbrush with water and follow up flush with our thinner.

Try it, and report back. I tend to abide by Mission Models’ advice, but I have read accounts from modelers who have thinned that paint with all sorts of things and made it work. I have only tried their thinner and have been happy with it. Although water might work, it might hurt the adhesion of the paint.

Once I tried to thin it with Future and liked the results so much that I now use it as the de-facto thinner. It has the advantage of giving the paint a lovely shinny finish.
