Paasche H Airbrush - Constantly clogging

29 August 2013 - 02:56 PM

Can anyone tell me what it takes to keep a Paasche H series airbrush from clogging about ten seconds into spraying ?  Im shooting Vallejo Model Air paint.  Ive the past two attempts even tried thinning the paint a tiny little bit with rubbing alcohol hoping to cure the problem but the same happened.  Ill take the bottom fed cup off, take the tip and needle off, clean both, put it back on, start spraying again and it works like it should for about ten seconds and then back to the same clogging.  I clean the needle tip with a qtip or rag, nothing.  Starting to get very frustrating.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Hoping Donn Yost will chime in here as this is his brush of choice I believe.  


Also with the different 1, 3, and 5 tips.  Do you need a different needle for each or does the needle that comes with the kit work for all three tips ?  Ive only ever used the 3 tip because thats what was on the airbrush when I received it and couldnt seem to figure out how to get either of the other two tips on.  Thanks in advance.  (So frustrated Im about to send my Badger Patriot 105 back to Badger, get it fixed and go back to using that one :D ).

Broken windshield repair

07 June 2013 - 08:11 PM

I recently broke the windshield of the Nascar build I'm working on masking it.  Broke it right down the center.  What is the best way to repair it or glue it back together ?  Is there any tips or tricks to make the process easier ?  I realize you glue it back together so no sarcastic replies are needed ha ha.  Just wondering if there are possibly any tips or tricks to making the repair process easier ? 


It doesn't seem to be a clean break as the two halves don't seem to want to mate up perfectly to glue it back together. 


Also, after painting the black outline around the trim of the windshield, (and before I got smart and masked the outline I'm painting), my lines were a bit crooked.  So I used a brush dipped in lacquer thinner to straighten my lines.  It hazed when using the lacquer thinner.  Will dipping the windshield in future get rid of the hazing from the lacquer thinner OR/AND if not what can I do to get rid of the hazing from the lacquer thinner and get the clear shine again on the windshield ?  Thanks in advance for answers to either of these questions.
