The MMP Polyurethane Intermix is an amazing product. We know there will be a lot of questions about it. What does it do ? How does it work, do I need it etc...
Well here are the answers. DO I NEED IT? Yes and No. MMP Poly is optional. The poly does a few things. It increases flow from the airbrush in addition to the incredible non-clogging flow you get with-out. Slower drying times, increased durability and adds a beautiful slight eggshell sealed sheen plus a flawless smooth finish. The Poly Intermix is also an additional adhesion promoter and increases durability. Always add Poly when spraying onto Lexan, vinyl, polycarbonate etc. The natural eggshell finish is ideal for many reasons. Seals the paint for washes, pin washes, applying decals and more. Amazing for Aircraft, Cars, Trucks and more. Poly is not a flow enhancer. Flow is just one of the by products and features of the poly. Adding poly will create an automotive grade polyurethane based acrylic paint that is tough as nails.
POLY BOTTOM LINE : Poly will add increased durability and adhesion properties, due to the nature of poly it will finish with a slight eggshell finish. We add it to every thing we spray. There is nothing complex about it. Again poly will seal the paint and dries from the inside out thus creating a hard shell automotive grade finish. Yes the paint can be sanded and yes the paint can be weathered and all chipping tech can be performed with or without poly added to the paint.

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.
