I ordered this airbrush because it seemed alright and was bottom dollar. I'm a tanker, I'm allowed impulse buys...

Anyhoo, I also ordered up a compressor but I want to know what you experienced painters think.

Even if it's crap, still not a bad deal.

Those big sausages you call fingers will not like the double action trigger...

Hows the control on a gun like that? I'd be interested in fine control for camo lines and whatnot, I thought that was harder to get with a single action.

No buddy, much easier with a style like my Badger 150 or Airbrushers Paasche. You see you just adjust the needle from the back for size if line or spray. With double action as you pull the trigger back that pulls the needle back and allows more paint and when you press down on the trigger that gives you the airflow. There are ways to set up a double action so you pull the trigger all the way back and press down for air and you will get one size. you just have to set it up that way. There is a real art to learning to use a double action...

I have the same airbrush great model that's easy to keep clean I used it for all my base colours. Served me really well when I built 1/35 armor , was gifted an iwata which I used for camo and figure painting back when I had time lol

Hey who knows... next challenge will be trying out a typically Grey Panzer, I'm nervous to start spraying any of my bigger veterans just yet.

In the meantime..

Click the links for high-res.

Having a hell of a time creating a simple link to photobucket hosted pictures... and our forum server does a hack job with resolution so... they look fuzzy Sad
