I wanted to tell you about an incident that recently happened to me. I used the 3rd generation AK varnish with the 3rd generation AK thinner, more compatible is not possible. My sixth sense made me take my 20 euros chinese aero with its 0.5 needle and I thank it from the bottom of my heart, I'd better not think about what would have happened with an H&S. At the end of the varnishing, I put thinner in the bucket, I let a little pass before "bubbling", empty the bucket, start again two or three times to clean everything. All this was a waste since I spent more than an hour scratching here and there to remove a layer of varnish, very thin, which had lodged everywhere and which refused to go even with "aggressive" products and several ultrasounds. Of course the same happened on the model, a thin matte skin appeared, although it was a shiny varnish. It goes by rubbing with the pulp of the finger. I searched the web and I'm not the only one to have had these problems with these varnishes, some criticize AK in a much more radical way, even insulting them. Anyway, what's done is done, I would just like to understand what happened and how to avoid this in the future. And, if possible, use those polishes that I paid for, rather than throwing them away. I probably made the mistake of "wetting" the layer as I had seen in several videos on the opening. Based on your own experiences, what can you advise me? Thank you.
Thanks for the information. Never used it myself, and not readily available in Japan.
Did you manage to rescue your air-brush?
Yes, without blood but with sweat and tears. I'd to totally dismantle the airbrush and scratch any surface with toothpicks, plus aceton and ultrasound treatment, not a nice job, and finally replace all the joints.
I got issues with AK acrylic colors not even compatible with their own acrylic thinner, making a kind of glanders ! I like their primer and Extreme Metal colors, but I'm not married with them, Gravity makes great products as well and ZP too.
