I used my Aztek/Testors for large area coverage and it did a decent job and was not as temperamental as my more expensive airbrshes and it was surprisingly durable. Over 25 years I only replaced 2 nozzles and that was because I lost them. Plus it was easy to use so I trained to use double action brushes with the aztek

I guess I need to start hoarding replacement nozzles and parts. I have both the A480 (metal body) and A470 (plastic body under Model Master logo). I wonder if they are going to kill their life long warranty on the airbrushes

Cheers

Too bad about the paints.

I sold my Aztek 470 years ago, the only regret was that I bought it in the first place.
Yes, I know, many users like the Aztek airbrushes but I certainly did not
