  1. Good day. I have just started using my airbrush after some brief testing about 30 years ago. So far, I've sprayed some Tamiya and Gunze-Sangyo acrylics with pretty good results, using their propriety thinners I have a a goodly stash of both Polly paints and was wondering about airbrushing them. Can they be sprayed? What should be used as a thinner. Would a flow inhancer/ drying retarder be used? Cheis
  2. We at Riders Hobby Shop (U.S. based) are looking at carrying a new line of paints manufactured by Mission Models. They are or will soon be available world wide. Currently available only from the manufacturer with no alternate distributors. I have not had a chance to use these colours yet myself but online reviews seem to be pretty good. Britmodeler lets me reach out a bit farther around the world to ask if any of you guys had used this stuff and what your opinions on it were. Thanks for your opinions guys!
  3. Hi I have an old basic compressor 2.5 bar 50 l/m I am looking for a regulator to fit but can only find ones with a much larger pressure range Does anybody have any ideas where I could get one Thanks David Hill
  4. I've not long had one of these fold up spray booths.. I've been using a rattle can to undercoat as an interim until I get an airbrsuh & compressor. As can be expected, the filter has become a bit clogged so I'm looking for replacement filters. I know that this filter material can be purchased as a roll, then cut to size. Does anybody else buy it on a roll and where's the best place to get it from? Other than that, is there anywhere that I can obtain these filters in bulk or multipacks? Thanks everyone. Regards Martin
  5. Hi everyone i have been modelling for around 14 years and spent most of it using a rattle can and a good old hairy stick, however i want to start using an airbrush as i seem to be stuggling on getting a great finish. I have around a £100 - £130 and im looking for a setup which i can use to do fine detail painting as well as painting full car bodyshells in 1/24th and also aircraft fueselages too. I have very little knowledge on airbrushes so im putting the question out to you guys. What is the best kit for a airbrush trainee and what could i get for my budget. I would be greatly appreciated for
  6. Hi all, For masking when airbrushing I have used a number of the usual camo techniques - paper masks, white bluetack worms, hand spraying, etc. I prefer the paper masks that I create using 3-view drawings references etc but getting them adhered to the model adequately is an issue for me. Often the depth of the worms (or looped Tamiya tape) is variable and I then get some "blow" under some of the edges. I wonder if there is a product out in the market that has the adhesive qualities of Tamiya tape but is a roil instead of flat tape. What I am thinking is a 2mm(?) worm on a roll th
  7. Hello, I'm new to airbrushing and I'm experiencing some problems. Whenever I'm spraying paint the paint never seems to dry, it just sits there and stays wet and will turn to a very dark colour. Is my pressure wrong or is my paint too thin? I'm currently using Humbrol acrylic paints and I'm using Humbrol acrylic thinners. My airbrush is a H&S Infinity and I'm using a Sparmax TC-610H compressor. If someone can tell me what the problem is that would be most helpful. Thank You Fraser
  8. NOTICE: On day 6 it is clear that I have either damaged the airbrush, or, the airbrush was perhaps not that good in the first place. I get near instant clogging and I see the paint flow being inconsistent as I gradually try increase the paint flow with the lever, if I screw on the nozzle cap too much. Apparently there is a sweet spot, that makes the paint flow seemingly perfect, with a nice spray, with no clogging. So I can still use this airbrush I think, until I try out some spare parts or buy a new one. Edit: Warning: Since I started a few days ago, I might have learned a few more things
  9. Notice: Go here to see a later post in this thread to see the final result: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234991809-finished-homemade-spray-booth-project-an-attempt/?p=2186396 I will have to do some detective work, but I thought I'd start by making this thread. I acquired this nice transparent storage case shown in the image below, and I have 6x used Noctua NF-P12 fans that fit nicely at the bottom of the case. I think I can make this work, but there is one problem that I am not sure how to deal with: Q: How do I power the six 12V (1watt) fans from the 230V power ou
  10. Hi All, I am very much a novice at airbrushing and learning has been a very steep curve for me. I am very pleased that I started on Tamiya Acrylics as they were/are very forgiving and meant that, for me, very little frustration with clogging and tip drying etc so that I could concentrate on technique. However, moving on, I find Tamiya's range of colours limiting, particularly when it comes to the RLM colours, so finding the Italeri Acrylic Luftwaffe set I was over the moon. After purchasing them my joy soon turned to frustration. I could not get them to airbrush nicely, constantly cloggin
  11. Morning all, Are earth colours difficult to airbrush? I'm painting an Amera Nissen hut using Humbrol Dark Earth 29 and it's proving difficult to get an even coating, with some splattering & it's pretty powdery. I know from my days in the art materials business that artists' earth colours are in effect ground up mud in the relevant medium (oil, watercolour etc) - is this the same with modelling paint? Any way round the problems? Thx Andrew
