Hello!

If you have the aztek instruction video tape then you should insert it in your VCR The 4709 works with almost all types of paint, as long as they aren't too thick (the consistency should be milk like). I use my 470 with tamiya acrylic, revell/humborol/modell master enamel and ordinary oil paints. Works great! So don't worry, You don't have to buy another gun.

So long,

azteks are a good brush easy to learn and clean also a bit more forgiving on the miantance side should you not clean it right get one you'll enjoy it

I have an 470 and it is a great brush. I only use acrylics but my friend sprays enamels through his with no problems. EZ to clean and maintain. Buy one. I can spray fine lines too.

Thanx for the informations. I've just one fear: which type of paint thiner shell I use for humbrol. I usually use petrol. The thinners don't crash the airbrush's resin parts?

If the BIG BANG don't kill you the fumes will not help either!!...unless the roof has already gone that is !!

I hope this is a translation problem....use Humbrol thinners...for Humbrol they do work well....use turps subsitue for cleaning
