    Kev,
    I have some alkyds also, but unused.
    Do I have to use distilled water,
    or just run the tap and crack on?

    Try this on the Military Modelling site Kevin:-
    http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/postings.asp?th=23796&p=1
    Scroll down through the various pictures until you come to the US uniforms and the summaries for the photos.
    Then scroll down a little further and you'll come across the listings of paints that might be used.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Hi Nap,
    Noticed you mentioned water soluble oils. Are they easy to work with? Have seen them, and thought about buying.

    You are a good judge, small tubes, small mind, big choices of paint.
    keep me happy for hours that will.

    Be aware Paul that alkyds and water soluble oils are not the same. Alkyds are not water soluble, they're just like normal oils but cure faster. You can try mixing them with water, but have plenty of coin on standby for your swear box ;)
