Default Createx wicked colours vs Pro-Line?

Just ordered my first airbrush and compressor. Now Iím looking at buying some basic paint colors. Iíve been looking at the createx brand and Pro-Line. Does one perform better for our application?

Proline is smoother and sprays more evenly.

Also dries faster due to being a different blend.

I use both but really liking the Proline stuff!

Subbed as I just got into airbrushing also. Painted a car with Createx paints. It sprayed ok but would like to try Proline. Will be nice when Proline gets the metallic/pearl line of paints out.

I actually started painting shortly after this thread and I ordered some wicked color paint. So far not overly impressed some colors are much thicker than others which is a pain in the ass. They don't spray consistent unless you thin them out quite a bit. Going to keep an eye on proline and probably start using their products

The Proline paints are a special formulation by Createx designed for rc painters specifically for this application. It is likely your going to find them a better choice for rc unless you want a color you can't mix or is unavailable.

Where can we find this info? Or do you know someone at Proline?

This isn't a big secret. Pro-Line discussed at the IIC when the paint came out.
But yes, I know people at both companies through business relationships.

Hows proline regarding paint stickyness to lexan? All colors normally can be damaged and scratched easy if not backed by some good old rattle-can white...will get my set of 5 next week and test the proline myself...

Are the Pro-Line paints basically the same as far as spraying goes? Are they the same "thickness"? I know with Faskolor and Creatix some colors are thicker than others.

I find I still have to thin the pro line paint or it does not spray smooth especially the florescence. And like other paints some colours are thicker than others.

Thanks. Can I use the Createx 4020 or 4030 to thin it?

I have been. Actually finding I prefer Wicked Colors to Pro-Line paint. Seems to give me MUCH less problems and the Wicked Colors spray much more consistent.
