  1. Hi, I have been having real issues using vallejo primer. It has been clogging my airbrush and getting bad results and find even though it is definitely thin enough I need to pump the airbrush. It is soooooo frustrating! I see bits flinging out of the airbrush (AB) and can't get a nice slow low pressure low coat of paint / fine slow mist and build up layers like I want too and constantly find the need to pump and have a sudden burst of paint. I clean my airbrush with a mix of 99% rubbing alchohol, glycerin and method glass cleaner and it's brilliant. I'm losing the will to paint / live using this primer. I will not ever use nasty fume filled solvent based primers as they are killer. It has to be acrylic and safe. What do I need to do to find a solution?? - Adding klear? - Use distilled water and not tap water to dilute? (I live in oxfordshire and the water is hard) - mix my own primer using what...? - mix something else with vallejo primer? I have searched using the ;britmodeller tag and see lots of talk, but most of it leaning towards solvent based which as I say is an absolute no no. I don't tend to have such an issue when using a new bottle of vallejo primer only when it has been ran down and I'm using the last quarter of he bottle??? Is this the answer? Is there a way of filtering the primer to get rid of the issue???? Please help!
  2. Chaps. I know this has been covered somewhere before, but I can't seem to find the answer. Which mask and filter are you all using for airbrushing lacquer paint? I need a new mask setup and am looking for suggestions. I'd like a half mask rather than a full mask, as I do spray in a well ventilated area and only small amounts at a time. Yes, I am aware of the dangers of ingress via the eyes etc, please keep this on topic, as topic creep seems to be an issue these days! Rick.
  3. Wondering if anyone uses or can advise on respirator cartridges for airbrushing. I will be using a 3m 7500 series respirator, but do I need only multi gas/vapour cartridges, only particulate filters or a combination of the two? Cheers
  4. Hi all, I'm a complete novice just trying to get my kit together before embarking on some (hopefully) great modelling journeys. I've an airbrush which I haven't yet used, just a bargain basement thing from eBay (didn't see the point in splashing out straight away, I can always expand at a later date). The one thing I feel the need to purchase is a respirator or mask of some sort; my modelling will be taking place in the garage and there are no windows and with winter almost here, I'll be keeping the door shut! Can anybody recommend a mask or respirator? It doesn't need to be too flashy and the cheaper the better, but it does need to be effective. Thanks in advance, Scott. PS: If anybody has any tips they learned from when they started airbrushing, please feel free to share
