  1. It is, but the Ultra brush is a simplified entry level brush to keep the price down, but using the same needles & nozzles as the main Evolution & Infinity range.
  2. The standard preset handle(123573) will sort of work on the Ultra. You need to unscrew the limiter all the way out. The ultra is shorter at the back end compared with the other brushes, so you need to make sure you don't force the needle through the nozzle when fitting it to the ultra. I haven't tried it yet, but you could possibly add the the rear handle extension which should extent everything so it would work OK.

  3. Sounds like you need to change the needle O ring. Part 7A in the attached parts diagram. https://airbrushes.com/parts_info.php?cPath=400_403_1_9_46&products_id=1850
  4. Yes we stock them and normally supply one and cleaning brushes with the airbrush. PN 128990 They are a yellow plastic cap you put over the airbrush to force the air into the brush to mix paint or help to clean the brush. A little cheaper than the £3.20 that badger charge for a rubber cap. When we charge it's £0.30 If anyone needs one send me an SAE and I'll drop one in the post. The address is under contact on the home page of the website H&S Yellow cap Paul
  5. The only thing I would say if you are having problems is to stick to the manufacturers products. And use the thinner and retarder that the manufacturer recommends for each paint range. Vallejo paint doesn't generally doesn't like solvents, it can gel the paint a little and it can collect in the nozzle and could be part of the problem you are having with the Evolution. Paul
  6. What are the problems you are having with the Evolution?? Which nozzle sets are you using ??? Paints, thinners cleaners? The brush that is suitable depends on what you are using it for... Subjects, paints, thinner etc as well are you looking for a brush for fine detail, or camo or overall coverage ???? etc... Paul
  7. Me to, should have asked Mat Irvine if I could sit in to one of their catch ups, too late now ! I have had a play with Arthur's typewriter that the original 2001 script was typed on while no one was around !
  8. With everything else going on I'd forgotten about her death, never did get to meet her, or Patrick Moore, or Arthur C Clarke.
  9. So bits of everything, from fine details to area work. I would suggest something like this: https://www.modellingtools.co.uk/airbrushing-set-br--harder-and-steenbeck-ultra-2in1-02mm04mm-nozzles---2ml-5ml-paint-cups-12695-p.asp The compressor is made by sparmax quiet, runs constantly when switched on, has a pressure regulator and hose in the box. The airbrush is a Harder & Steenbeck Ultra, their beginners brush, but uses the same needles & nozzles as the rest of the range. It has a 2ml and 5ml paint cup and a fine 0.2mm
  10. Hi, Extractor should be OK as long as you don't put solvents through it. As for the airbrush.... what are you going to be painting? Subject, area work, fine detail etc.. Paul
  11. Have you visually checked the inside of the nozzle for any paint gells moving around and blocking the nozzle ? Paul
  12. I would send it back for a refund and get something that is fit for purpose. There are a number of people on here that can advise you what to buy depending on the budget you have, what you are looking to be painting & the paint you are using. Paul
  13. This hose system is very flexible in configuration, there are a number of different connectors that can be put on the 6mm clear hose including quick disconnect fittings and you can have a hose up to 100metres long if needed, the fittings on the end of your hose are pushed into the hose and secured by a locking nut, this allows you to cut the hose down to the length you need. Your moisture trap will normally collect the vast majority of moisture, but in hot humid weather it can get past the trap and get in the hose and condense there. At the moment putting the hose outside straight should hel
  14. Strange, I have reports from people who have had flashback fires from them.
