Tried it out for the first time today. The lights are very good, but unfortunately make it difficult to see the vertical side facing outward, so it is difficult to determine the liquidity of the paint applied on vertical surfaces. No big deal for Matt finishes, but tricky for Gloss. Will need to add a strong light over my shoulder to cover this.
Otherwise, the extraction is superb. I note the filter doesn't catch all of the paint, as there was some residue on the fan outlet when I packed it up, but the hose didn't seem to have much in it, so hopefully there is nothing on the outside of the window frame.
Struggled a bit with getting the location of the paint stand right when painting the vertical surfaces, airline kept bumping into the front edge, stopping me getting the brush at 90º, but a swivel connector might take care of that.
It's a learning curve for sure, I'm far more used to spraying full size cars. Comparatively speaking, the size of an airbrush on a 1/24 model, against the size of a siphon gun on the real thing, is more like painting a car with a pressure washer.
