I'm an amateur/novice/beginner at this hobby, compared to most others. I have tried to brush and spray Tamiya acrylic paints for a few years and had been unable to get anything approaching an acceptable result, even with their X-20A thinner. Until I thinned it with basic, hardware store lacquer thinner. Now I feel as comfortable with it as with MM enamels, my previous paint of choice. I'm still getting used to it, but I seem to be able to get more consistent results with it than with the enamels, which occasionally result in a small disaster, depending on the situation and my self induced problems. I'll still use both types, but try it, you may like it.
