Get this impressive all round airbrush that’s very easy to use at Ultimate Modelling Products
At the time of writing this double-action airbrush retails for around £89.00 from UMP and I think offers very good value for money. Take a look at the following videos to see how I got on during the test.
You get a very easy to follow instruction sheet in the presentation box that, as ever, is well worth reading 2-3 times before you start exploring and then go for it!
In this test I am using Tamiya acrylic paints and the paint is mixed about 60% paint to 40% thinner. I’ve created a custom mix of brown and white to create Hemp that I’m spraying onto the nose cone of my Revell/Hasegawa RAF Phantom FGR-2 in 1:48.
As you can see the paint sprayed very smoothly and the trigger action is precise and subtle – meaning that you only need to pull back very gently on the trigger to get sufficient paint flow and a very smooth finish. You can see that I’m spraying quite close to the model – maybe 10cm/4ins?, something like that?
Here’s the finished nose cone…
The airbrush is easy to clean and I just followed the simple instructions on the instruction sheet – happy days!
