Any Badger 350 experts out there?
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, June 21, 2003 3:22 AM
I've been using this brush for a while now, and I think its about time to move on. I'm having a hard time with camo work, soft edges, etc. I'm going to try using a fine fluid tip and fine air tip with my fine tip. I'm currently using a fine tip with a medium fluid tip and a medium air tip. I just get to much spattering around the edges of the main pattern.

Anybody get real decent results with this setup? Should the fine fluid and air tips make a difference?

Just purchased same model today and sprayed bottom of a PBY Catalina with it.I noticed the same.I have no idea yet what is on the airbrush straight from box but I imagine medium.

I need to learn this also and make my line between the two colors finer

Hey Vermont, i am in the process of building the Monogram PBY-5A "Cat", but the kit didnt come with the clear parts...on ordering same from Monogram, they said it was discontinued, and they didnt have all the parts. Well, the one REALLY IMPORTANT part they didnt have was the can-0-pee. Any suggestions on where to get one, or what to do about this fatal problem?

I don't own a 350, but I do own a Badger 150, and I have similar problems once in a while. I really only use my Badger 150 for general spraying, and basecoats. I picked up a Tamiya HG Super fine (which as a .2mm nozzle point). Painting camo patterns freehand has never been so easy. I highly recommend it. Only downfall is that you will need to get an adaptor for the airhose to fit to your compressor (if you are not using a Tamiya Spray Works compressor).
