What he said. HW store lacquer (cellulose) thinner to clean airbrush for any lacquer or enamel paint.

 

Don't dare use HW store lacquer to thin paint. Don't waste your money using model paint thinner to clean your airbrush.

What Bob and dnl42 said. Plain old Lacquer thinner will clean out Alclad, most any lacquer paints, enamels, Tamiya paints, Gunze solvent based paints. No modeling setup should be without some. Even if you don't use solvent based paints, there are times when a good soak in lacquer thinner will clean out any gunk left in an airbrush.
