Hi
What paints do you reccomend to paint a model? I know of Humbrol and Tamiya? Which other brands are good? Which paint is the best? Which paint is the easiest to use?

Thanks for all suggestions.

Are you using an air brush or brush painting?

Vallejo, Model color is about the best there is for brush painting, (can also be thinned for airbrushing) and their Model Air is already pre-thinned for airbrushing, just drop it in and go.

Colourcoats by White Ensign Models are good for naval subjects
