Wet field

Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

As with most things, the more you spend, the better the tool! I would recommend a double action airbrush (seperate air and paint control on the trigger) as they are much nicer to use, and give you more control over the paint you are putting down.

I would also recommend one that can accept different size paint reservoirs. Some of them just have little thimbles, which are great for fine detail, but rubbish if you want to cover a larger area quickly.

I've got an Iwata Eclipse SBS, but that wasn't particularly cheap. That has a side feed, so it can accept gravity feed cups/thimbles, or larger suction feed reservoirs.

That airbrush looks pretty good for the money, although a 0.2mm needle/nozzle is a bit on the small size. I normally use a 0.5mm needle, or a 0.35mm for really fine stuff. The smaller the needle, the more difficult it is to cover large areas, so if you only want to do detail work, then a small needle is fine.

Also, that brush has a fixed size reservoir, which you might find to be a bit of a pain (I would!)

I've still not mastered the art of clear coating, and I think the paint I am using is a bit rubbish, it is an absolute mare getting it thinned right. Too thick and it is all sputtery, too thin and it goes on too dry. Methinks it is time to ditch the pactra paints, and switch to something waterbased..... Can't wait to see what you have put on your Tx case. Speaking of which, I've just cut the foam out on my new one Smile

Sam, I've got a regulator that is built into my compressor, and then one on the brush itself that is abit like this. I keep meaning to get something posher that has a finer control, but this does me for now.

Andy, did you pinstripe the black out line on the jet?
Sam, When I first started with the airbrush I made the mistake of buying cheap ..... BIG mistake! I now use IWATA .... but there are loads of good makes out there and people tend to stick with a make thay are comfortable with.
I could bore everyone to death on this subject ......
Big compressor's are fine (in fact they are desired) providing, as Andy says, you use a regulator. With my 0.5 I tend to use about 40psi and reduce it to anywhere between 14 - 30 psi for my 0.35. you will need a a moisture trap / filter, and you need to be carfull of the type of compressor, some have a facility to feed oil into the air for lubricating tools .... avoid these at all cost!
Might be woth you joining a forum......
