Hi, I have just started a Trumpeter 1/32 A6 Intruder which was sent by a friend as a gift. I usually do WWII aircraft, and I don't have experience with modeling US Navy Jets. Therefore I need a bit of advice, especially using the gloss (insignia) white for painting the lower parts / undersides. My initial experience with gloss white was not pleasant. I used Gunze Aqueous Hobby color H316 with 50/50 mix with the Gunze's own Thinner (Mr. Aqueous Hobby Color thinner) for acrylics. Unlike my WWII flat grays and greens, this gloss paint was messy, needed much more time to get dry, dried with plenty of fingerprints on, etc., and was also very difficult to clean from the airbrush. Most importantly, I am not happy with its covering properties. Are there any recommendations for getting the best from it (handling, mixing, airbrushing and cleaning tips)? Thank you,
