2) Light Grey Green 4:1 ratio w/ .5 white tip on German figures
3) Middle Stone 5:1 ratio w/ .5 white tip on soviet figures. Went through Middle Stone fast also temp cooled down & Moister increased and paint seemed to go on oddly. 

What We Learned:
A)  Found out that Tamiya field grey is the same as Model Air Light Green Grey Are basically the same.
B)  Vallejo Model Air Surface Primer Dark Yellow  RAL 7028 is The Same as Model Air "Middle Stone" may be Middle Stone is slightly brighter
• May have thinned paint too much sometimes usually 5 parts Paint to 1 part airbrush thinner. worked well with surface primer but not as well with regular Model Air.
• Small tip ( .4 black tip) seemed to have a more lumpy application on test CD's
• Ran air pressure between 22 - 18psi. raised to 30psi+ when cleaning brush
• Cleaning brush & Tips went very well this session
• almost messed up on ratio, was a little confused at first and had effect of ratio backward for a minute or so.
• had problems with Lighting. light was splotchy and hard to see model also background sometime it hard to see
• • had problems with holding models to hold sticks. need to work out better system.
• • had problems with moister around 5:30-6pm

••• Soviet color combo to try = Vallejo mix 75% US Dark green + 25% white. = 3:1 mix
