  1. Looks like £190 with 30 paints on amazon at the moment. Sounds a bit steep to me and you probably won't use all the paints. Separately £65 for the brush, £10 to £20 for the hose depending on spec. Then you can buy the paints you need,..... Paul
  2. Yes no problem : https://www.modellingtools.co.uk/quick-release-27mm-to-18-m--for-18th-hose-104403-3554-p.asp Paul
  3. The one on the Infinity is a 1/8th connection on the brush and a 2.7mm on the other end. There is a choice of quick release adaptors. Standard connector for a 1/8th hose: H&S 1/8th Quick release. With an air regulator https://www.modellingtools.co.uk/quick-release-27mm-air-regulator-18th-male-thread-for-hs-iwata-hose-104703-3555-p.asp
  4. 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.
  5. 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. Handle extension Evolution or Infinity 126803 (modellingtools.co.uk) Paul
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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 !
  11. With everything else going on I'd forgotten about her death, never did get to meet her, or Patrick Moore, or Arthur C Clarke.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Have you visually checked the inside of the nozzle for any paint gells moving around and blocking the nozzle ? Paul
  15. 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
