    just do as you normally would ..... with etac efx i only need flush with water..... even at the end of the day, a bit of a stir in cup with paint brush to get the remnants out but a good few flushes, if it sprays clear thats good enough

    Thanks guys.. I use createx illustration paints.. So I guess I still can use water and it will not affect the paint or airbrush..

    You know Badger, it's your karma to get side feed micron!:D Why would you make your forum nickname as badgersb? lol So it's not surprising to get SB model, though karma is tricky a little, as it hasn't brought a side feed badger to you;) But who knows what will be the next destiny's present:)
    You're among those luckies, who is presented by sb micron by the wife!
    Why wouldn't I have this kind of a present by the wife?:( I think maybe bacause I do have no wife or maybe I do own sb micron already...:confused: I'm trying to figure it out.

    Seriously, I'm glad for all of you guys, as you have real good wives. I think this kind of presents show us the relations you have in your families.
    Have many pleasant moments (maybe even touching ones) in your lives!:thumbsup:

    badgersb did you try it already? How does it feel? What airbrush you were using prior? When I first tried my CM-C 0.23 I was totally blown away.

    I sincerely hope It's not possible, even though some junk mail in my e-mail says so. :-D
