I am busy with a F14D 1/48 scale build. Herewith some pics - I will post more

I am looking for advice - the fuselage is supposed to be Tamiya AS16 (Light Grey USAF), but its only in a spray can. I want to use my airbrush though, SO I will need to mix the colours. ODes anyone have a reference or indication of the mix for the correct grey?

Jakes I haven't done this for some time but one can decant the paint into a jar / bottle and then you can use the decanted paint in your airbrush.

Mars on this forum is a Tamiya expert maybe he can help?

Jakes, try the following. Place the aerosol can into warm water for a few minutes. Then spray some into your airbrush mix cup. Thin with 50% Tamiya yellow cap lacquer thinner. Then airbrush as usual. Works a treat :smt023

I've used it with AS and TS aerosol paints.
