Due to differences in monitor calibration and operating system gamma settings, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any paint image or color as it is displayed on your monitor. Please use caution in ordering paint, and pay attention to the title and description of the paint for an accurate representation of the color.

Mission Models Chrome and Gloss Black Base are very easy to use. Although they can be thinned to meet your needs, there is no need as both can be used straight from the bottle. The MMP Gloss Black Base is what allows the chrome to "reflect" like a mirror. The smoother and glossier the Gloss Black Base is applied, the better the chrome effect will be.
Applying MMP Chrome finish requires a different technique than using standard MMP paints. Please see the FAQ section of Mission Models' website
for additional information and application instruction.
MMP Chrome is made with finely processed 6061 Aluminum and is extremely durable when dry.
For full information see the Mission Models website.
Mission Models Paints by nature even when "airbrush ready" mix at varying consistency when formulating the paint, so one color may seem a bit thicker than another. This is not something to worry about and it is not a problem with the paint by any means. Although Mission paints are all airbrush ready you may find due to the nature of that particular pigment a bit of thinner may help you out. Mission does NOT add any additional thinners or reducers to force an "airbrush ready" product. This is an advantage to you.
If you feel you need to add thinner (technically a reducer) less is more! If you go by the " skim or non fat milk rule" Mission paint is "Full Fat".
A thinning example might be: 30-40 drops paint , 3-6 drops thinner , 3-6 drops poly mix and spray at 10-15 psi.
Don't worry if the paint looks a bit thicker than what you are used to (Do not mix 1:1) The paint will spray smooth as butter and not hide any details. We recommend spraying 2-3" from the surface at 10-15 psi. Light wet Coats.
DO NOT mix the paint 1:1 or 50/50. It is not necessary as with other products. The paint will NOT work properly if you mix 1:1 or 50% thinner 50% Paint. It will fail. Less is more.
Please follow these ratios when 1st using the paint to get the full and proper experience. Once you have mastered (mastering is easy when you mix properly) the basics then feel free to experiment you will be able to go by eye.
