I've just redone my t-34 in tamiya x-61 and have done a very subtle lighting of the panels ect
what colours would you recomend to bring this oout and what medium should I use oil/enamel/acrylic and airbrush/paint if oil/enamal what should I use to thin it? dont want to use pure turps as it's melted my kits before and I've found that I never got the effect were did I go wrong?

I'm finishing up a dark yellow tiger painted with tamiya acrylics. I used future as a protective coat, and I'm on my fifth filter application. Oil paint works great with mineral spirits and only interacts with the paint slightly (in a good way.) I've used umbers, siennas, white, gray, and linen. Mix the paint in a jar in small blobs with lots of spirits and apply it with a broad brush. You can also apply tiny dots or lines of oil paint and brush them out with lots of clean mineral spirits (makes nice streaks.)
