Ive been looking at the Testors website and they have some great colors for at home tank painting.

They are broken down into enamel and laquers, does anyone have experience with them.

Im wondering If there is any problem if I use colors from each category. I plan to finish it with a spraymax 2k clear.

What is the best way to go?

If you're new to painting, just don't mix them.

Otherwise, the rule is that you shouldn't apply laquers over enamels. The other way around is less likely to be an issue.

Either way though, spray a scrap piece on the side beforehand just to see...

Build you coverage up far more slowly than you would with anything else. My experience with testers rattle cans is that the paint is very thin and easily prone to running

I picked up the Testors Airbrush kit..........
Pretty nifty. But I've been mixing colors out of rattlecans and using them.
