Recently I've been building a model car and the paints I own are Testors acrylics. Last time i built a car i used Rustoleum gloss black and it worked fine. This time I'm looking at Testors Gloss Yellow enamel paint for the body. Will that work with the stuff I'm already using?

They won't mix well. Acrylic is water based and enamel is oil based. Oil and water don't mix...if you're painting over other dried paints then you should be fine.
