Save That Paint

Need to mix up that perfect batch of paint, thinned just so for your brush or next air brush job? Or perhaps now that the model is finished you want to store any leftover for future touch ups in case of hanger rash or that not-quite-perfect landing? Save your plastic prescription bottles with the screw-on child-proof tops. They make a great airtight storage and/or initial mixing container for your paints. Most are see-through, so you can tell what you have in them at a glance. I also put some tape on them with the name of the plane it was used on.
