I chucked mine in the bin, utterly useless stuff.

I think it may even have destroyed my airbrush, no matter how I clean it the brush won't spray smoothly at all....just comes out in splatters.

:oops: looking more like you poured some glibber onto the parts rather than brushing paint on - terrible stuff, I'm using pactra and lifecolor, sometimes also gunze...

Yes they are a bit "duff" in the "tins" Julian, even I've learnt it even in my limited experience ( :oops: )- Do Tamiya etc do similar ones?
