Tamiya is my go to for airbrushing. You can thin it with Isopropyl Alcohol.

Vallejo sprays nicely as well, I thin it with Tamiya X-20 thinner. Make sure you put a clear coat on it to protect the paint as it is very fragile during handeling. But don't let that bit of info put you off on trying it.

Tim,

Do you ever spray Vellejo Model Color paints? If so, what is your thinning regimen?

I have never had great results spraying Vallejo. Tip dry is endless and makes my experience shooting the stuff unenjoyable. A simple YouTube search will unearth countless videos supporting this claim. I use Vallejo when brushing figures and find it's the best for that application.

 

When shooting Vallejo I suggest using their thinner for best results. I also discovered Createx Airbrush cleaner works as a decent thinner for Vallejo, yes, odd but true.
