First time using this unique paint, I have Tamiya Lacquer Cleaner on hand. Will this clean my airbrush after the spray job is completed?
thanks

Tamiya airbrush cleaner will clean anything in the airbrush, including Alclad.

Cheers!

The lacquer thinner from the home improvement stores is fine for cleaning air brushes at a fraction of the cost.

100% agreed. Why waste expensive Tamiya yellow cap for cleaning your air brush. You'll be using 100 times more Lacquer Thinner to clean it one time then what you use for thinning paints over multiple uses.
