To misquote Mark Twain, Vallejo Model Air is “better than it looks.” This is a good paint for brushing, but it needs some additives to overcome some pretty significant problems. I recommend Windex window cleaner. The ordinary blue stuff. Add 3ml of Windex to a full bottle of Model Air. This translates into three “eyedroppers” if you have a regular little eyedropper, or a half-teaspoon if your Mom lets you use the measuring tools.
