Blog- wainwright1's Blog - Old Humbrol Thinners

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

Not sure if anyone has raised this issue before, but I will do it now and see who might know the answer.


Humbrol changed the formular for its paint some years ago and the type of thinners used for the new type is not compatible with the old paint, and vice versa. Having built up a fairly good stock over the years, most of which is still quite usable, but sometimes getting a little thick, can anyone advise if the thinner for the old paint was a a proprietory spirit which could be bought under another name or something which was specially blended for the paint. Or perhaps there is another substance which work as well as the original ? It would be a shame to have to through away a lot of otherwise good paint.
