Finally!!! MMP Paint success!
Posted by HighDesertmodeler on Sunday, January 31, 2021 7:54 PM

Between the fine folks at Mission Model Paints (they answered all my concerns) and an article from Model Paint Solutions (John Miller), I now have my MMP paints spraying great without the dreaded tip dry which plagued me before.  

I'm using the method prescribed by Model Paint Solutions to thin MMP paints using a 10:1 MMP thinner to MMP Poly mixture.  With this 10:1 mix, I thin MMP paints as follows:

For base coats - 60/40 (paint to thinner/Poly mix) (spray 15-18 psi)

(for example: 6 drops MMP paint and 4 drops thinner/Poly mix)

Camo and fine lines - 50/50 (paint to thinner/Poly mix) (spray 10 psi)

...it took much effort but this works for me.
