    If available, the Createx line is probably a good choice (Its what I use) Im sure others may have better choices.

    Hi, Jesper - I have not worked too much with the Vallejo paints, but I do know some people that use them regularly. It is my understanding that there are two things that work very well with them - which are the brand name thinner, and the flow improver. I hear, particularly the flow improver makes a huge difference in the use of the paints through the airbrush. If possible, before switching complete paint systems, you may want to try these two things.

    There are quite a few different brands of airbrush specific paints - Createx, especially the Illustration and Bloodline colors are very good, but tend to also need reduction with their own proprietary mediums. Golden Hi Flow Acrylics tend to work very well, Com-art colors, and E'tac paints tend to work very well. Hmm, in Denmark, there are also some European colors that I am not very familiar with - Holbein, and Schmincke come to mind. I have no personal experience with these two, but have heard of and seen some very good works produced with them.
