Re: Lacquer Thinners


Yup. That's the same thing Bob Weaver told me 30 years ago, "Just use a good all-purpose mineral spirits paint thinner". Back then all the ScaleCoat II paints were duPont enamel. I think either Dulux or Duco, I can't remember which. By the way, Dulux was a duPont brand of enamel, which is where the term "Dulux Gold" came from.

I have a gallon of KleanStrip. I use it to clean my brushes (not airbrushes). It's no good for anything else. I couldn't find the "good" stuff I had always been using (i.e., a "hot" lacquer thinner) at Ace or Wal*Mart, but finally found it at a Automotive Parts Store (AutoZone, I think). Guess what, it was Rust-Oleum lacquer thinner, which is now made by RPM. You guessed it, Testors!

At Accurail we just did a custom job where we had to use Scalecoat II to match the color; the folks at Weaver recommended common paint store naphtha for thinning.
