    I'm Rainfall,

    I'm learning how to airbrush, or I'm at least trying to my best.
    I believe I have started with airbrushing months ago, not years.
    But I'm not able to tell exactly when I first started...

    The reason why I have started with airbrushing because I'm a military scale modeler that likes to build models of the second world war, the ground forces to be specific.
    And I did paint many models just by hand with a brush, but I did not get good results.
    And it was hard to get in all corners and difficult to reach places, that is when I decided that airbrushing was the way to go.

    Long story short, it did go pretty well in the beginning, but as time was passing and life got in the way as well.
    It did go worse and at the time of writing, I'm still encountering a lot of problems even when practicing and excercising. Which is a reason why I decided to sign up for this forum.

    I'm hoping that I will be able to get the help I need to properly learn how to airbrush and most important.
    How to effectively trouble shoot my airbrushes, because there are a lot of situations I just simply don't know what to do.

    Currently I'm having a Harder en Steenbeck Evolution 2 in 1 airbrush, which I'm having problems with. Which you will find in a seperate topic I'm going to post shortly.
    And I got two Fengda airbrushes, which I don't know the numbers and name of yet.

    Regarding other equipment, I got two airbrush cleaning pots, a complete Fengda Spray booth and a complete airbrush compressor set from Fengda.

    Feel free to ask for more details about my equipment, I will search for the names and such.

    If you have any other questions, ask them and I will see what I can do to answer them.

    Currently I'm using Tamiya acryclic paint, I don't know which nozzle size is recommended for that. I'm just using my Harder en Steenbeck Evolution 2 in 1 airbrush with the 0.20 mm nozzle or something on it. And I got a 0.40 mm nozzle included in it for the more rough works, like spraying metallic paints and varnishes.
    I got a Fengda airbrush with 0.30 mm nozzle I believe and another airbrush with different nozzle sizes and I can all use them to spray the Tamiya acrylic paints.
    I just recently read an article about airbrush tip dry and I'm probably experiencing that, so I probably need to purchase Tamiya paint retarder for that.
    I hope I have provided you with enough information regarding this topic.

    I had to check you tube for that paint and it turn out it can be used with 0.2 nozzle so no problem there
