    Wow Dan! Looks like Becca has got you the Rolls Royce of airbrushes! (Sorry, I bow to our trans-Atlantic cousins; the Cadilliac of airbrushes!).
    You should be able to do some great work with that mate. You'll get lines thinner than Lucky's excuses when it's his turn to pay for a round!
    Now I KNOW I must get a new 'brush!!

    holy **** o.o

    there's a detail badger airbrush at Michael's for about 60 bucks, but with their 50% off coupon, it would be just 30 bucks :D

    anyway, congrats, man!

    Congratulations, Les. Thanks for the link. I'm jealous - I think my old Badger has finally kicked the bucket for good this time. Now I have to decide if I really want that new processor and motherboard for the old computer, or a new airbrush. Then again, I obviously have a working computer right now, and I have some planes waiting for a nice airbrushed clearcoat. You'll have to let us know how your airbrush works out.

    That seems like a darned good price Dan! That's about £65 here, and I think I saw the same, or similar, maybe it's predeccessor, for around £110 !
    I reckon my old Badger is getting worn, as I can only get about 1/8 inch small line now. Time for a new one for mottles etc!

    Pervert? Heck no man, a husband who knows the hand that feeds him. :lol:

    I'm jealous, she's gorgeous with those fine lines. I wish I had one that could make those curves with such a soft edge. Able to get into those small details with variable blow rates. She won't let you down, Les. She's the best on the market. And an ability for a decent amount in the cup up top will allow you to go for extended periods. Bet that she's way better than your past. I'm utterly impressed. Now, can you live up to her capabilities. That is the question. Practice. Practice. Practice.
















    Oh. Your airbrush is nice too. :toothy3:
