I used a Paasche VL1 for almost 20 years. It is a tad bit on the heavy
side, but if it is kept spotless, it will work like a champ for many years.
When I finished a color, I would blow 2 or 3 color cups of thinner through
it, then I would break it down and wipe the insides out with toilet paper.
For what it is worth, I have found that when cleaning a double action
brush, if you pull the needle out from the front and put it back in from
the rear, paint doesnot end up in the inner workings.

It took a while, but the Testor's brush is a real breese to use. It cleans
up very easily, tips change with little or no effort, and are very

At the time, I have a Paasche F, H, VL, Badger 100SG, 150GF, and a Testors
Pro model. All have been picked up over the past 20 plus years, and I keep
the 100SG and the Testors hooked up all the time.

I have not been able to tell any difference in final finish. They all do
the same thing. Put paint on a model with very good results.

I do keep my H available for spraying Future on as a gloss coat, and for
the final flat finish.
