Best thinner for Mr Color fluorescent colors?

I am interested in airbrushing Mr Color fluorescent colors (mainly on the mirror housings on some race cars so small surfaces).
Bear with me for a stupid question here, I am more used to airbrushing with the Tamiya acrylic paints.



What is the best thinner to use with this type of paint (cellulose)?
The Mr Color Thinner (T103)?
If I canīt get that product in Sweden, what other products can you guys recommend from experience?


Cheers,
Johan

Now this forum really has gone down the drain...
Simple, polite question and no one bothers to reply.
I am guessing loads of people here has airbrushed the Mr Color range of paints.

I would think any enamel thinner would work.
I haven't used the gunze florescent paints.
but the enamel I have used, I just use the testors thinner
in the model master series, don't know if you can get the in Sweden.

A little harsh?

I don't use Gunze colors so didn't reply. I am not sure they are as widely used as one would assume.

Gunze Mr.color thinner or Levelling thinner. Tamiya Lacqur thinner is also working well wirh Gunze Mr.colors. If these are not available in your country, you can use “no name” cellulose thinner available, but test the compatibility before. Some thinners are more aggressive than others

I have always used Mr.Color Thinners. Never had a reason to try anything else. Beautiful paints really a joy to use. Im glad to see this forum back.

Re: Best thinner for Mr Color fluorescent colors?

Mr Color levelling thinner would be my first and best choice, Tamiya lacquer thinner at a pinch if you can't get the levelling thinner.

Don't use enamel thinner, they are lacquer paints, so one must use a lacquer thinner..
