Jos Jansen During the ESM 2018 in the Netherlands I bought the Harder & Steenbeck Evolution Silverline Two in One for a beautiful exhibition price at the Airbrush Almere stand. Last night already tested, what a difference with the Fengda that I have worked with in recent years. Do you have experiences with this airbrush?

Jos Jansen It was indeed crowded again Erik (didn't saw you ), I found a kit that I want to use to build an Eagle from Soesterberg. Unfortunately, I did not find the set of decals for this. But it is always fun to walk among so many enthusiasts and enjoy so much passion in modeling ... fantastic!

Konrad Limmer Hey Jos yep I work with this kind of Airbrush. Started with the Ultra and Switched after a while to the EVO!
I like it very much it is a great tool to work with.
Also the spare Parts availability is great once you Need it .
Erik I've also think about the infinity. Is it worth to invest into the Next one?
Which needles you use?

Wim van der Luijt congrats, I have the same one....I would recommend getting the open air cap if you spray a lot of Vallejo paints, it will make the cleaning of the needle tip easier when your paint starts to dry on the tip.....I only ever use my 0.2 needle[img1]
Jos Jansen Thanks Wim, a good suggestion ... I work a lot with Ammo from Mig Jimenez. You can use this paint directly from the bottle, but I always add a little bit of thinner so that I have almost no dried paint on the tip of the nozzle.

Vesa-Pekka Palmu Moving from a 15 dollar chinease iwata copy to this was quite an improvement. Cleaning is much easier and no need to deal with microscopic brass nozzles. Way less clogging and other issues even when using a 0.2mm needle than the Chinese with a 0.3mm needle.
Marc Stecher Hopefully Urban. Test will start later on my Bearcat.

Urban Gardini It's one of the easiest airbrushes to strip and clean so the maintenance is a piece of cake. I've got this one myself. I never use the small cup and I use the 0.2mm needle about 90-95% of the time. It suits me perfectly and I'm comfortable with it.

Marc Stecher Ok, NOW I know the difference between a 20 bucks chinese copy and a real airbrush gun. Oh boy, I am deeply impressed how smooth working can be. Very fine an stable spray, no spitting, no clogging and, as you said Urban, very easy and fast to clean. It´s a whole new kind of working now. Since I had to spray whole planes, I used the 0.4mm needle, still need to test the 0.2mm when it comes to the camouflage of the planes. For large jobs (like my coming 1:16 tank), I additionally ordered the 0.6mm needle.
