Wow - is this for real Ignis, you really like the turbo?? it looks like the original 'paint distributor'
I came across this tool a while back before I bought my own stuff, and it's amazing how many people love this brush, mostly older artists and mostly for nostalgia, it looks cool, and probably ideal for me since nothing else works for me ,
I'm old indeed haha! If you can not do detail as fine as you would like to do, this is the airbrush to use. If you're prepared to learn how to tune it at least... It loves uros or equally fine pigmented paints, anything more course it just refuses to process properly.
I personally can't use uros due to constant lung infections and I work at home, but I've heard all kids of positive stuff over it.
I saw a really old guy using it in a video, but it was a while ago and I can't remember the guys name but he was totally awesome to watch.
I saw it too in some on-line museum, I think for a lot of the older guys it's a case of if it aint broke don't fix it.
I don't know where you are exactly in Holland, but you're perfectly welcome to drop by any time if you're near Hoofddorp (which is close to Schiphol airport) to get to know about the Turbo and try it yourself. I will start giving classes (soon I hope) and if there's enough interest in using the Turbo, I will include that as well. Probably just a handful of maniacs would like to know how it works and how to adjust it...
I'm actually in Hardinxveld -Giessendam in Zuid - Holland, normally due to my Scots temperament I don't have the patience to sit the mandatory 3 hours on the A13/A4 when it takes 3/4 of an hour on a sunday, But I might just arrange a day out and come have a look sometime, I'll get back to you on that, I would be cool to meet our members in person.
Thanks for the invite.
Always wanted to try one see them on ebay allot almost bought one to add to my collection. They have been sworn by as the most finest detail brush ever made. I would love to give one a shot one day and it was a really nice read from your blog.
I have one of there talons and it's not my favorite of my bunch but plan on replacing the head with Mike Learn Mojo 3 headset and see how that treats it.
