I've had somewhat less luck with mine. I've had to send the body back to
Testor's once when the lever got disconnected. The same thing has happened
again and I haven't bothered.

I never could get it to spray a fine enough line. Although I know Jesse
can. You guys should see his model of (oops! wrong war, sorry Jesse I
almost blew your cover!). I've always used it with acrylics, never
lacquers, maybe I could do better with them.

I won a Badger 150 in a raffle, and so far I've been happier with that than
any other airbrush I've used. If I had to rank the double action
airbrushes that I've used in order it would be: 1) Badger 150, 2)
Testors/Aztek Professional, 3) Paasche VL.

Maybe I'll send it back for repairs and give it another try.
