Hi all!
Quick questions:
What shall I use to thinn the Humbrol paint before I air brush it?
What shall I use to clean the air brush after usage?

I have used Humbrol for years and have always used mineral turps - mainly 'cos it is cheap! Never had a problem with it & Humbrol either spraying or brushing.
