    Hello everyone,

    I'm Vince, and just starting with airbrushing. I'm mainly a model builder (motorcycles mostly), but also interested in other uses such as paintings, bike frames etc.
    I live in The Netherlands, and might take a course with a tutor some day. Not sure about that yet.
    I bought a Harder and Steenbeck Evolution Silverline 2-1 about two weeks ago, and got some Vallejo Model Air paints. Playing around with it, I already noticed that some colours are easier to lay down than others.

    Cheers,
    Vince

    Welcome Vince, nice to have you aboard. We have a few modellers here so I’m sure they’ll come say hello soon enough. You’re right, some colours need to be thinned more than others to flow nicely, that’s all part of the wonder of airbrushing lol.

    Hi and welcome from the UK. As you've already discovered different colours need different treatment, but you soon get to grips with it all. Shout out any questions you have, lots of talented friendly peeps here to help you out.
