18 years ago
year with ModelMaster Acryl (I like them). The PollyScale went on
beautifully, at least the one color I sprayed (interior green). I thinned
with distilled water and added a couple of drops of Createx airbrush
additive (retarder). Paasche VL with #1 tip.
I'm not sure how to do end-of-day airbrush cleaning for PollyScale. After my
painting session, I first ran distilled water (mixed with a few drops of
dishwashing liquid) through the brush, then ModelMaster Acryl airbrush
cleaner. This system worked ok, but not as well as with MM paints. I have
some Polly S airbrush thinner, and went back and cleaned some dried paint in
the paint cup; took it right off. Should I spray Polly S through the brush
rather than the MM cleaner? Somewhere I read that using Polly S with Polly
Scale paints can gum up the works, and yet a number of online hobby shops
suggest Polly S thinner with Polly Scale. I'm confused...
