I tried this today and I'm amazed at how easy it was to use and how smoothly it sprayed. I've been a Mr. Color (Gunze) guy for quite a while but, in my opinion, MRP is better.

Their website is www.mrpaint.sk and you can buy it at Hobbyworld http://www.hobbyworld-usa.com/Store/index.php) or Red Star Models http://www.redstarscalemodels.com) in the US.

Actually it depends.

Gunze Mr Color paints are flat, semi-gloss or gloss, depending on a color - they are marked accordingly on jars.

Yes

But as far as I remember only black, clear and possibly white as well (they certainly have gloss and flat white, not sure about semi-gloss). In case of other paints the color determines the sheen.

I'm covering my ears and closing my eyes

Several years ago I quit using Tamiya paint in favor of Mr Color, leaving me with a huge collection of unwanted Tamiya paint. I now also have a huge collection of Mr Color paint. I think I'll plead 'ignorance is bliss' and not go through another switch. But it's nice to know that there are more good paints showing up!

I use both Mr. Paint and Mr. Color

July 16 2017, 12:31 AM 

The two lines compliment each other and cover colors the others don't.

Gary where do you get your Mr. Paint?

July 16 2017, 5:06 PM 

I know where you buy your Gunze but how do you get the Mr. Paint into Canada?

Cheers
Chris

I buy directly from Mr Paint

July 17 2017, 10:08 PM 

.....http://www.mrpaint.sk

Not cheap but I buy it. I get it very fast, much cheaper shipping than anything out of the US. My last order was in just over a week. Fairly sure it was airmail too the last shipment.

Same here. Have a ton of Mr Color now, most bought pretty cheap, ....

July 16 2017, 5:07 AM 

bottle and shipping (surface), from Hong Kong over the past 6-8 yrs. Along w/ lots of MM from the past 30+ yrs, AND a bunch of new Vallejo Model Color (for brush painting mostly), unless Mr Paint offers a pita to mix color that the others don't, I AIN'T switching. Quite happy w/ Mr Color and even tho Mr Paint might also be great, it'd have to be at least 120% better than Mr Color (paint Q, airbrush-ability, price, availability, colors offered, etc, etc) for me to even think about a poss 'switch'. I will be painting some US Army OD, IJN ship and Luft grays in the near future and may take those opps to give Mr Paint a test drive, just outta curiosity.

Re: MRP (Mr. Paimt)

Thanks for posting Rob. Went to Hobby World-USA site. Was impressed by the variety of available colors as well as the through explanation of product and how to use. Just a couple of questions. If you did need to thin, what thinner to use. What product to use in cleaning airbrush after use?

MRP thinner

July 16 2017, 12:51 AM 

You don't need to thin it, but if you wanted to you would need lacquer thinner like Mr Color Leveling Thinner which is great stuff. For cleanup I use hardware store lacquer thinner, and because the paint is already so thin and the pigment is very fine it leave almost no residue at all and cleans up very easily.

Can't imagine any circumstance where Mr. Paint would require thinning.

to be formulated to work perfectly/best w/ paint by their expert chemists and all. If a pita to source, too pricey, then you can look to other Q thinners (Mr Color Levelling, UMP, etc) and have a 'baseline' to match, look to, work from.

John,

Nathan's response to your question is spot on. One of my favorite things about MRP is the paint is ready to go right out of the bottle. Shake, add some to my color cup with a pipette, and spray. Once finished, I shoot some lacquer thinner (I bought at Lowes) through my airbrush and I'm done.

I still use some Mr. Color but MRP is easier (since it requires no thinning).

Rob

RLM 75 Grauviolett MRP-065

July 16 2017, 8:53 AM 

RLM 75 Grauviolett is part number MRP-065. It is out of stock at Hobby World.


Mr. Paint website
http://mrpaint.sk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=117&search=MRP-065

They seem to have 2 versions of the elusive "RLM 84" (Hopefully 84 v1 and 84 v2 so one can mix 60/40 for 84 v3) I have only sprayed the medium green. No thinning required. Worked very well. I usually use enamels.

To add to the accolades...

July 16 2017, 9:44 AM 

I know the adages about it not being the car, it’s the driver or it’s not the tool it’s who’s using it.

I’ve used a bunch of paints, enamels, lacquer, and acrylic, and have struggled with getting a tight airbrushed edge if I wanted to go freehand for camo or hat ever. Tip dry, spluttering, splattering. Different thinners… too much thinner… not enough thinner. Then every combination being further affected by AB PSI.

There is no doubt in my mind that without changing anything but using MRP there has been a major improvement in my AB applications.
