Maybe the nozzle is clogged. Try soaking it in thinner.

l have had that problem Dave, l would soak the nozzle or trade with another can. There is a chance it the paint. l would try it on something else when test spraying. Sorry to here of your problem but testors are known for spitting....

I have an old brush cleaner bottle with lacquer thinner in it that I keep my nozzles in. As soon as I'm done spraying, I just plunk it in the bottle 'til next time. Just make sure you do a test shot before you spray your model to get all of the thinner out first. It will keeep your nozzles spraying like a new one every time. If it doesn't spray better after that, as Carl mentioned, it could just be bad paint.

Thats the only issue I ever have with MM colors.....I learned to decant, or back way up..18 to 24" and waste a lot of paint misting

Not only is Testors spray paint notorious for being thick , it's also a painfully-slow drying paint ! But , it hasn't always been that way ! I noticed that their paints --at least their enamels-- were getting yucky back in the late 90's . Prior to that , I never had a problem with their paints , dry time or otherwise .
Be careful with how much of that paint you lay down on that Duster's body , as the side markers , the gas cap and the door lines are pretty faint on their own !

Thanks for the reminder. I am going to scribe them a bit deeper
