  1. Of course, with such a large paint dilution, the pressure should also be reduced. I use about 1 bar pressure. I think that if you are not happy with the effects when painting with a 0.2 mm nozzle you can try to buy a 0.4 mm nozzle/needle set, I suggest a newer type without this perforated housing (unless you have a 2 in 1 set, in which it was located such a nozzle). In addition to H&S Evolution Silverline, I also have Iwata HP-BH, where the paint structure is similar at a dilution of 50:50 as for H&S Silverline 70:30. Unfortunately, painting with acrylic is not easy. Two days ago I tried to paint a semi-matte black Tamiya and only using Mr. Gunze Color Leveling Thinner obtained a satisfying effect both with H&S and Iwata.
  2. I use the H&S airbrush with a 0.2 mm nozzle to painting with Vallejo and AK acrylic paints without major problems. I'm diluted paint in the ratio of 70-80: 30-20 in favor of the thinner. Painting takes longer because the layers are translucent, you need to apply more of them, but this allows you to get interesting effects. Vallejo uses H&S Evolution with a 0.4 mm nozzle in his instructional videos. Regards, Paul
  3. I understand! as an architect, I spend more than 10 hours a day in front of a computer, also having access to the equipment I proposed. Unfortunately, not having time to build models ;-(. The thread you are running is interesting for me and my colleague, because I am also preparing to valorise my HP 0/400 but for the 0/100 version. My colleague wants to build a conversion to the civil version for the resin HP 0/400 in scale 1/48 from CSM. Regards Paul
  4. Moa, do you have the option of using a cutting plotter? If so, you can prepare a mask made of oracal foil for the entire sash, transfer it using a transport foil, remove unwanted elements and spray the ribs with e.g. a Mr. Surfacer. Fast and effective method.
  5. My answer may be late, but I propose to build a compressor based on a refrigerator unit. My, on the picture, built this month, cost about 100 £. I have tested various Chinese compressors, but in terms of efficiency and comfort of work, probably none matches that based on a refrigerator unit. Regards, Paul.
