Aside from that, nice review. I like how you really got into the testing and various methods that some modelers use. On that note, I, like you, am invested with other paint companies at this time. This paint, is not my cup of tea, but, it would possibly be for somebody else looking to get away from what is out there.

This paint, is not my cup of tea, but, it would possibly be for somebody else looking to get away from what is out there.

I was thinking along the same lines... using Gunze almost exclusively and being disappointed with other newer acrylic brands. But then I gave MMP a try.

I can tell you, this is not just another brand of paint. Try it, you will be surprised.


PS Great videos Will. I watched both before doing my review of the paints. Some really nice pointers about using MMP.

Hi will
Thanks for your review on mission model paints
They seem to be advertising here in the Uk, and I was thinking of buying some to try.
Your thoughts on these paints have been very helpful and I do like your approach of trying different products on the paint in question

Beautiful review, very well done,I like Will Pattison videos, is a few months that I switch to MMP, and I am very happy,go down smooth as silk, are very resistant and no guessing with the thinner and Poly,couts the drops and ready to go, no alchemy in Starbuck style "full milk" "skim milk" "cappuccino" "macchiato" etc ... the only thing is to be careful with the Poly because under a certain temperature can go bad.
