Painting/Priming / Airbrush, Airbrushing, and Compressor Questions
« on: February 23, 2007, 01:35:17 PM »
It's a Fine needle, if the packing screw is in the airbrush and can't be taken out then i think it's there then. When i disasembled my airbrush, here are the visible parts that i'm able to take out according to this PDF.
1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17
 I think those are the numbers that i was able to disassembled

Hmm, I think I have to look into that #5. It's very small and i'm not sure if it can be taken apart from the airbrush. When I disassembled the airbrush, i don't recall of seeing that in there.

I tried googling with term like "Iwata HP-C diagnosis" "help...paint cup...squirt...leak" didn't seem to get any good result. Since there are some iwata Hp-C users in here so it's probably the best way to get to to the bottom of this problem.
I need to know if this is a genuine airbrush or not so i can return it, that's why I've to bumped the post.

Yeah, those parts are there. I don't have the HP Hi-Line C so the number #29 and 30 do not  apply in this situation.
I should test my airbrush with water first like i did with my first airbrush before using real paint. Luckily, I  wear eyeglasses so the paints didn't hit my eyes but it did dye a portion of my hairs. (Safety first!)

It's a used airbrush that i got it off from ebay. I cleaned off all the residues, so it  almost look like new.
Mr.Maigo, what kind of gasket between the nozzle and the handle are you talking about.

Ok, I tried out my Iwata HP-C airbrush today and apparently I don't know how to use it right.
I sprayed it at 13-15 PSI, I added my acrylic color into the paint cup then close the cap and pressed the trigger and pull back, but it kept squirting the paint out of the cap(little hole in the cap). It kept making a bubble sound, it's like mixing or something. My hairs and my head covers in white paint. I thought it was the needle but it's fine.
How do you use a normal Iwata HP-C

I painted straight out of tamiya paint bottle. Dipped the brush in the paint and barely touch the parts that need the color. And then I finished it up with some q-tip with thinner.

Well, the black shoes work well with the red clothing.
That suck you have to strip off the paint after fixing the masking problem.

Pressure is very important because it could ruins your paint. I usually adjust it from 10-20psi depended on the stuff i'm spraying out of.
The repirator mask i use is a 3m 7000 series(7192, 7193, etc...).
Spraybooth :\, I wanted one but since i'm spraying in the garage with a regular fan blowing the fumes toward the garage doors, there is really no need for one at the moment.

I also have the Badger Crescendo 175 and my compressor is ABD compressor.
The compressor sound level is almost loud as a regular microwave. I don't really care about the noise because when you're airbrushing the parts, you'll completely ignore the noice of the compressor.
You can upgrade it to come with a tank. The quality is the same as those of iwata or other brand. As long it do the job. By the way, it came with moisture traps so you don't need to pay extra for it.
It's a good combination of Badger 175 and this compressor. However, if you plan spraying primer coat with the Badger airbrush, you probably want to buy another airbrush since I'm very lazy to clean the dry primer's sediments in the empty bottle. Or, buy some more empty bottle with the ...feeder..?. to connect to the airbrush at

Very impressive, making a junk into a treasure. I like the way you use the styrene method.
Looking forward for more updates.

For the flash on vynil, use a high grit (600 or so) sand it on hot water, take a while but it work.

Painting/Priming / Mr. Sufacer and Primer Questions (post 'em here)
« on: July 12, 2006, 05:42:33 PM »
I used a whole bottle of Mr. Surfacer and put it in a big Gerber baby food jar, I mixed about 6:4 thinner to surfacer. I don't really know how many drops of retarder to use, so I put in about 5 drops or so. The outcome is good, and it's a perfect mixing solution, so i don't need to mix next time I'm priming  because already got the whole jar. And of course the Gerber's jar is pretty tight so I won't fear of the surfacer drying out.

Filling putty with superglue, you don't really need talc. Another alternative is chop down sprue piece and put some cement on the sprue to let it melt. And the paste it on the part as a putty
