Good, I also want to get any old airbrush and use it for primer work only (for varnish also)

White primer applied, and the parts that will be covered with decals are masked.

May I suggest possibly a Badger 350? I use one for all my priming and heavy spraying. The best part is that you can simply toss the tip assembly in some thinner and let it there to clean itself between priming sessions. The paint/primer never makes it into the body of the gun so it never needs maintenance. I've used the same gun and tip for decades and it is totally faithful. They are relatively inexpensive as an added bonus!

I agree about this, I just watch yesterday night all options to get this airbrush  Long time ago I have this airbrush and know its performance. It is excellent for this job but also one other things is included is the quick release connector, Iwata is on list as well I will have no need to get other but will see. My Aztec jammed and I would more prefer to repair it (it is not suitable for long time use with nitro thinner)

My Fokker was awaiting that other workbenches need also aluminium paint...

It's used as a second primer.

Thank you!

Same goal as for the Hellcat: simulating the natural metal; I will use maskol applied with sponge and then paint the green paint. Removing the maskol will give nice (hope so...) weathering.

Yes: tomorrow.

Not today because glossy paint asks for more time to be perfectly dry...
