Can dump a lot of paint
The only issue with the 105 is that it is capable to dumping out a LOT of paint if you pull it right back, so if you are painting fine lines, you have to be VERY careful with the trigger. So for critical detail work, I'll still use my other airbrush even though I may need to clean it every 10-15 minutes or so to ensure that the lines are still clean.
The protruding needle
I'm very worried about the protruding needle since accidents do happen. I guess I better order a spare needle just in case....
For everything else, including 'simple' fine lines, the 105 will be my go-to airbrush. It deserves 5 stars for not clogging on Vallejo Model Colour (1:1 thinning ratio, other airbrushes still clog, the 105 doesn't) and not needing to be cleaned every 10-15 minutes.
I’ve been using this brush through several months of heavy spraying and am fully satisfied with the performance. It truly fits in the middle of the spectrum as far as detail and features goes, which makes it a great workhorse brush for anyone. As long as you break The brush down at the end of each session and soak everything but the spring loaded section in the back in soapy water or Windex (I prefer to use a shot glass to soak in), it will continue to perform wonderfully. Super durable and rock solid construction.
Highly recommend Badger as they have great products, service and reliability.
Painted 80% of the models in the included pictures with this airbrush.
Just received item; well packed; plastic box is in good condition.
Open up; the 105 looks great in new condition and comes with a spare nozzle tip.
first thing... check action of airbrush... stiff but smooth back and forth. No issue.
next is the needle. Pulled out easily, and noted no bend on tip. However, ball at end of needle was painted blue, and had a section slightly scratched and faded. (See picture) No big deal as it is only cosmetic.
Now here is the part I have issues with.
When i checked the paint cup, I noted the bottom half of the paint cup was completely cloudy due to scratches. (see picture) I am not familiar with the badger brand so I am not sure if this is meant to be normal. But the Sparmax Max-3 I had before have a very smooth paint cup from top to bottom. Even the badger's bottom of the paint cup looked like it is already slightly blemished for a new product.
Next, I was not able to unscrew the head assembly and air intake valve by hand. I was lead to believe it is recommended the parts be screwed in to hand tightness; However, I had to get a pair of pliers to unscrew the head assembly and air valve. It seems the tightness was caused by some corrosion which held the cap harder than it should be. I am still unable to remove the regulator of the head due to limited tools in the office.
I have not yet tested the spraying of it yet;
Am considering if I should return for an exchange.or keep it as I need it for a project.
Decided to return the first one as it is corroded... easy arrangement for the return with Amazon's online service team. and they also have arranged for the new one to be shipped express to Australia. Received within 4-5 working day
Now, the new replacement's condition is better.. Still slight snow scratch in the paint cup, but not as bad.
Needle head can be removed by had, but the needle head tip is screwed in tight. had to use 2 pliers to flick it open. Good news is that it doesnt have any obvious corrosion on it. however the air action was a little rough.. .guess it needs to be oiled like some other reviewers mentioned.
Spray it last night (lucky I had an adapter for Badger AB) easy spray kit... easy to clean.. I sprayed some Valejo primer which normally clogs my Sparmax Max3, and it shot without any problem. Pulled needle out quickly, some thinner to rinse, push needle back in, another flush and a wipe with a paper towel, and off I go with a new colour.... great for model spray job with lots of colour change which is what I bought the 105 for.
Overall, wish the condition of the 105 was better. But it does it job very well.
Increased my rating from 3 star to 4.
