Testors Model Paint

Hi all, my wife bought me some model paint (she thought it was airbrush paint for testing). How do I go about reducing it for the airbrush? I have mineral spirits and paint thinner.. Do I need to filter it? Was thinking to reduce it to the consistency off low fat milk with mineral spirits and trying it.. I don't want to clog my airbrush I am kind of scared to try this..

Testor's paint thinner works great, Always try to filter you paint and make sure you have enough thinner to clean the brush when finished.

Testors makes two types of model paint; solvent based enamel and water based acrylic. If it's enamel, mineral spirits works fine at about 50:50. If it's acrylic, try plain water.
