    tamiya vs revell paints
    hi all just need to pick some brains from here. I have just brought a few 'tamiya' paints for my new kit. when painting them on they seem to go on very thin and once dry going to put a 2nd coat on pulls the first coat off, am I right in thinking that they are not meant for brush application and are just meant for air brush use ???.
    I don't have the use of an airbrush and don't build enough to credit getting one so I just use a brush to do the detail painting and auto spray paints for the bodies and big bits. I have use revell paints a lot in the past and not had the same issue as I have with the Tamiya paints. that's what has lead me to think they are mainly airbrush use not brush..
    and help on this would be much appreciated.
    thanks stu
