It seems that pink is the best base color under yellow

Following, interested to see the result of yellow on white. I've had similar issues when trying to paint yellow over dark paint. 👍

You're doing good there Rene! A couple of notes on your spray can adventure: 25-30 is definitely waaaaay too far from the model. The paints hits the model while it starts to dry, hence it has no time/solvent to flow into a smooth layer. If using a spray can use one or two light misting coats followed by one or two 'wet' coats. The Tamiya lacquer spray cans should normally result in a smooth solid layer if used this way. Squirting some paint on a piece of cardboard or wiping the nozzle with some lacquer thinner on a cotton bud before starting to spray should normally clean the nozzle without the need of holding the can upside down after a painting session. But, since your result was already gritty, there are a couple of things you could try if this happens again in the future. First, 'simply' sand/polish the grit away. This might leave some paint built up in panel lines and rivets, but should generally result in a much smoother surface. Secondly, load your airbrush with lacquer thinner (preferably Mr. Leveling Thinner or Tamiya Lacquer Thinner) and mist the model with pure thinner. Since lacquers never cure, but merely dry, this revives the paint so it can flow in a smooth layer. (Caveat: I only know this works with paint that just started flashing off, I don't know about fully dried paint) Third, use 91% IPA on cotton buds or towels to wipe the model clean and start over.... When I F... up loose parts, I just submerge them in a cup of alcohol and wipe them clean before starting over. When starting over, either use the spray can again or......... decant some paint in a cup, let it gas out (the dissolved propellant needs to evaporate) and pour it into your airbrush cup. On the note of lacquers, did you know Tamiya Acrylics can be thinned with lacquer thinner? because of the hybrid nature of this Tamiya paint line, both acrylic (and alcohol) and lacquer thinners can be used and the paints behave accordingly to their thinning medium. I hope this can be of help to you in your future endeavors. 🙂

Oh! By the way, did I mention your Bf looks good? 😉 👍

Thanks for all the tips Patrick! Very much appreciated.

I guess if I do take another trip to the land of lacquer paints I'll try to use them with an airbrush.

You'll enjoy them Rene! 🙂👍

Keeping the can upside down to clean the spraycap will empty the can. I learned that the hard way as well.
For decanting, try this Youtube Video
I always thin with 20-20% mr levelling thinner, but that depends on needle size, temperature, humidity, etc. These paints can go on ultra smooth
