Definitely but you need to be careful.

I think these paints are too think to use straight from pot on a model like the Victory. Since they are water based, common sense would suggest that's what you thin it down with and that may work for simple painting but it will be a disaster with an airbrush, as I wasted a lot of time and energy finding out.

Since then, I have bought and used these and they work like a charm giving beautiful results.


Airbrush Thinners

and this:

Flow Improver

With this to complete the set:

Airbrush Cleaner
