Testors Pactra Paint & Gravity Feed Airbrush - should I think it out?

I'm going to lay down my first base coat - should I be thinning out my paint? Sorry for the newb question - I did use the search feature and while I learned alot, it did not answer my specific question regarding the paint & gravity feed airbrush (airbrush city one).

thanks much

If it is a gravity feed airbrush, you might not need to thin it. It is really hard to describe how thick it is before you can use it with an airbrush.

Is it pactra laquers or acrilic?
If its laquers then thin to about 6 parts paint to 4 parts thinner.
never tried the acrilics so not sure on these but all paint should be the consistancy of milk whether gravity fed or not.
