I finally purchased a Badger Anthem 155 dual action airbrush for projects like the Tamiya 1/48 "AK" aggressor-but it oversprays like he@#! Especially the extremely light gray/flat black demarcation lines
I finally went back to my old school Badger 100 series gun to get it right, with many touch ups. I thought the 155 would give me the performance to make those tight contrasting lines on 1/48 scale aircraft? I tried adjusting the paint/thinner ratio with no luck. Will a finer needle help? Am I screwing up? Help! :?

Stop scaring me, I just bought one a few months ago and haven't used it yet. Its my first new airbrush in about 20 years. I have this exact same project on the books and I'm concerned. Thanks for the heads up!

Sorry, I just haven't had much time to get on here. Just clean it very good. Give it a D-level disassembly and clean everything. But as far as camo goes, I'd use paper and tac worm masks, not freehand.
Do your homework, Tiger!
