Mission Models Premium Hobby Paints

MMP Acrylics are simply put, the acrylic airbrush ready paint we've all been waiting for. No more messing with lacquer thinner! Just a few drops of their thinner plus a few more of the optional MMP polyurethane add-in (reduces tip dry and increases durability, cures to an eggshell finish) and your paint will come out beautifully smooth. There are no additional additives to MMP paints which results in no shelf life , hard settles or breakdown.
