Revell Aqua paint

Has anyone tried airbrushing with Revell's acrylic aqua colours?  Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Regards, Tony :-))

Personally I have not had much luck with them either with airbrushing or regular brush.... seem to be very wishy washy if you know what I mean

They are highlight paints not really suitable for spraying or large coverage areas. Although they dry quick and leave no brush marks you have to layer the paint.

I've used them and had no problems with them.
Add a tiny bit of water or acrylic thinner to the pain in the spray bottle to keep it from clotting.
