    Hi Paul,

    I should think that you will do fine with the smaller nozzles for premixed washes. Could you post a link to the airbrush please, I may consider getting another myself.

    Thanks Paul,
    At that price it's almost worth it for the hoses and attachments let alone the airbrush itself.

    My thoughts as well :avatar:

    My original one has three cup sizes as well as the choice of nozzles.

    The 0.3mm with the enamel washes gave a very nice tonning down effect.

    By the way which Valleo paints do you use ?.

    Hi Paul,
    I pretty much use all of them, although I doubt I will buy any more Model Air colours or replace those that I have - I am much too tight and it's much cheaper to mix your own from the Model Color and Game color ranges - you really do need to be using the Vallejo thinners with them though. I have had some success thinning with Tamiya X20 thinners but on some of the colours it just curdled so I now stick with the Vallejo thinners.
    I use mostly
    Medium Sea grey for grey wagons
    Dark Fleshtones for Bauxite
    Flat Earth for LNER NPCS Coaching Stock brown.
    I also use many of their other colours for weathering etc. - They do a Dark Blue Grey that I use a lot mixed with flat earth as my base weathering colour. I use their primers too. Wherever I can, I buy the bigger bottles as they are more cost effective. In fact I went to Valencia a couple of years ago and found big bottles of Gloss and Matt medium that worked out very cheap to bring back with me.

    Cheers Rob

    Dark Flesh - who'da thought, I would have never looked at that part of the range.
    I've not used thier paints yet, but keep hearing good comments about them, so no excuse now :avatar:
