Mission Models’ acrylic line of paint is non-solvent based and odorless. Mission Models have invested their time researching and developing this new line to meet their high standards and the ability to offer the best paints for scale modelers and graphic artists. Mission Models paints incorporate the finest ground and highest quality lightfast pigments. Their formula is triple pigmented and does not include any additional thinners or reducers which in time can cause a breakdown of the paint and diminish shelf life and quality.
Because their paint is triple pigmented and ultra-fine you will find that MMP offers superior and beautiful coverage utilizing thin coats from the airbrush.
Their paints are airbrush ready and can spray straight from the bottle with no issue and minimal tip dry. Mission Models do recommend adding one or two drops of their Polyurethane Intermix when spraying straight from the bottle for enhanced flow and slower drying time when atomizing from the airbrush tip.
Mission Models paint is designed to be airbrushed but can also be brush-painted.
Mission Models Paints will accept all manufactures clear coats without conflict.
Mission Models also offers their own Thinner which is technically a reducer. Their acrylic Thinner/Reducer acts as two different products. It is your Thinner and your airbrush cleaner. Many other products on the market require a separate reducer, flow enhancer, thinner and AB cleaner. Not Mission Models’. Simply add the thinner to your paint, mix to the recommended ratio of 20 to 30% to one (2 or 3 drops thinner to 10 drops paint).
Although the paint performs flawlessly straight from the bottle thinning it down with their Thinner / Reducer brings out the best. Mission Models thinner is also your airbrush cleaner. It is NON ammonia based and will not strip the finish off your tools.
For best results Mission Models highly recommend stirring the Poly and Thinner into the paint, rather than shaking.
The poly additive is beneficial as it increases durability, sanding properties and further leveling. You do not need to use the poly to make the paint work as intended but adding the poly to your reduced paint will give you increased and unbelievable museum quality results. Their Polyurethane will slow the drying time so less is more. If you add too much Poly the paint will dry slower.
Mission Models prefer to add one or two drops of Polyurethane to the paint when spraying straight from the bottle. There is no need to add poly to their primer.
