    Just bought this airbrush ......

    im just wondering if i should have spent a bit more and gone with something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Paasche-Airbrush-Double-Action-Multi-Colour/dp/B0017IFL4E/ref=pd_sbs_60_5?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0017IFL4E&pd_rd_r=421231b3-d5dc-11e8-8ea2-37ef59f12b0a&pd_rd_w=PAEHR&pd_rd_wg=fOh9v&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_p=18edf98b-139a-41ee-bb40-d725dd59d1d3&pf_rd_r=9C2ZG2ZEC1PHJTMF245W&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=9C2ZG2ZEC1PHJTMF245W

    When you say needle guard is that the nozzle right at the front? Plenty of air with that unscrewed but no paint!

    Strange, I was trying to use vallejo primer straight from the bottle. I read it shouldn't need to be thinned. Also tried adding water to the mix still no joy. Took. A new pot of tamiya acrylic paint filled to the top of the bottle with tamiya thinner and it is now working. Have they have the compressor running around 35_40 psi, is that normal?

    tried with and without the nozzle cover used Vallejo airbrush cleaner, which is blowing through a fine mist of cleaner ok once cleaned tried again, the same issue - must be something with the way I have set the needle perhaps?? tried different PSI makes no difference

    Yes swopped over needles and nozzle Although plenty of air is coming out No paint is coming out

    Just swapped the needle for 0.5 Wow with that needle cover off it certainly pushes out more air!

    Would that explain why the primer coverage when I was testing yesterday was not covering as wide an area as I was expecting, or do I have to experiment with different needle sizes?

    yes, I keep seeing Hiroboy cropping up when people discuss paints - wonder if he does one for a Tamiya Eunos Roadster
  13. thanks, everyone, I have some Vallejo surface primer, I heard somewhere that could be used in the airbrush straight out of the bottle?

    so for my Vallejo paints ( Which are not Model Air) may be a bit of Flow improver? and for the Tamiya Acrylics, I would need some Tamiya thinners - can they also be used for cleaning the airbrush after use?

    paints for a new airbrush

    Hi Just about to start using an airbrush for the first time. have a fair few small Vallejo model paints - and about a dozen Tamiya acrylics. Can I use these ok in an airbrush- would they need thinners or water- or would they work straight out of the pot! Basically, I have a new Tamiya Eunos car to build - and wanted to prime and paint with an airbrush Many Thanks Andy
