Paint Review: Badger Model Flex (NEW)

I had a hard time finding a picture of this stuff in the new squeeze bottle. For brushpainters the change of formula is a disaster. The new paint is much, much too thin for brushing.


  • Self Leveling
  • Need for Additives
  • Coverage
  • Proper Drying Time
  • Compatibility
  • Stippling
  • Fingerprinting
  • Adhesion
  • Line Drawing
  • Color Selection
  • Smell
  • Price


If you see the squeezy bottle– don’t buy it. This means that if you are ordering online you have to assume that all the paints are new stuff. It makes Badger Model Flex unusable unless you just really, really like gambling and you need a fix.

A sad and tragic ending for a truly great paint– but Badger IS an airbrush company. The fact that made the last great American brushing paint WAS a bit weird.
