First time im using an airbrush or should i say first time im making a real model ( now am taking the trouble to trim the sprues properly, fill gaps, sand, mask and try weathering) and have had several problems and questions:
1)Can i spray acrylics directly onto plastic without using a primer.
2)What ratio of paint to thinner do i use for spraying
3)Can window cleaner be used as a thinner, without water.
Problems:
1)Paint keeps drying on the needle or doesnt dry at all, even on the model for a long time!!!
2)Airbrush alternates between producing a fine mist, blobs of paint or just air,sprays clean water without any problems.
Thanks
Sunil P
