Re: Help me Obi Wan, you`re my only hope...

It`s supposed to be a double, although you`d never know it! It seems to have just a single action. To be honest the best airbrush I have used to date is the Revell single action jobbie that takes the air canisters. I thought it would make much more sense to get one that needs a compressor as it would be cheaper in the long run.

You should be able to connect your Revell airbrush to the compressor shouldn`t you?  Then you could use that one.

Unfortunately the hose is connected to an adaptor that screws directly to the top of an aerosol can and is much thinner that the hose from my compressor. This is an updated version of it, but the same principle:

That`s odd.  I know that I could connect my compressor to both the Aztek and the Badger copy.  You may be able to get an adapter to fit the airbrush and then connect the hose from the compressor through that.

You should be able to get a new hose assuming it`s not permanently attached to the airbrush. These cheapo single action ones are actually much better for laying down flat base layers and covering large areas than a precision double action one - which are like trying to get a solid fill on paper with a crayon...

Well I have to say the freebie airbrush has had a reprieve. I have run the Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner through it and it seems to be working like a charm now. So the Power Loader is now back on! Photos will follow, I promise...
