60 secs ? Too me that seems like a bit of an exaggeration. Even doing a quick back flush takes a few minutes.
It is an exaggeration Luke, it usually takes less than a minute.
A quick back flush in between paints and colors takes all of 15 seconds.
As I mentioned above, I havent been using an airbrush very long.
But I personally Iike break to down the entire airbrush and give it a full clean after each painting session,which for me usually requires about 5 mins.
Flushing the gun and wiping the cup and needle should take you a lot less than 5 minutes. At the most 2 minutes.
But even if you personally take 5 minutes I don't consider that a waste of time.
It boils down to how much you want to put into your projects.
From reading RattleCan versus AirBrush posts on many Forums, it is obvious that the AirBrush is misunderstood by a lot of people.
AirBrushing, learning the AirBrush, mixing paints, using good Urethane ClearCoats, all are the icing on the cake of Modeling.
