So I've painted my first layer on my first tank. I use a cheap double action airbrush and a rather inexpensive compressor (for swedish readers; they are both bought at Jula) some years ago, they don't seem to be available anymore).
A problem I experienced was that the hose got lose in either end during painting. The nut sits tight but the plastic hose won't stay in place. Appearantly it can't withstand the pressure. I've tried to find another hose on Biltema and Wentzels but all they had was. Much bigger than mine. I belive mine is M4 in each end. Theirs seemed to be 1/4 inch or something. Any good ideas for this matter?
Also, you who paint models using an airbrush; what kind of a brush and compressor are you using? I was looking at a Harder & Steenbeck, Evolution 2 in 1. But then I realized that there was two models with almost the same name. One that was 50 euro more and could regulate the pressure directly on the brush. Is this of any use for a miniatures painter?
What should you be looking at when considering a compressor upgrade? Mine seemed more powerful (more L/min) than some cheaper products (from Biltema). Is this relevant information at all?
