Automotive Touch-Up Paint...

What can I thin automotive touch-up paint with for airbrushing? I have a large stock of the ones that come with a brush attached to the cap. Thanks in advance for all the helpful advice.

I was wondering this too.

Most of the stuff I have is acrylic laquer, so I would say you need to cut it with a lacquer thinner.

I use regular lacquer thinner for those. I'm talking about Plasti-kote brand paints. They come in a one ounce bottle with the little brush, too. These paints are very susceptible to blushing if you paint in humid conditions.

I've used automotive touchup paints for perhaps 45 years on plastic model cars, almost always by airbrush. I use ordinary lacquer thinners with the stuff, has always worked just fine for me.

Lacquer thinner it is, then. Thanks for the tip. I knew I could count on the scale modeling community to send me in the right direction.
