Potentially opening a can of worms here but here goes; I have a Harder and Steenbeck Evolution 2 in 1 Airbrush and my 0.4mm set no longer works.
I'm usually very careful and dilligent when cleaning my airbrush, but I can see that paint is starting to form up on the inside of the body, so I've ordered a ultra sonic bath cleaner. Now I know that some modelers are dead set against using sonic baths to deep clean their airbrushes but that other guys swear by them and will regularly use them.
I want to try the sonic bath but I want to know what solution I should use. Probably a 50/50 mix with water. Obviously when I strip the airbrush down I will not be putting the delicate part that the air flows though anywhere near the bath.
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated gents.
These plastic kits are definitely addictive. being a fool to myself I've gone for 1/72 scale again . I decided to try a flying thing this time and as I live in Spain at the moment I looked for something Spanish and found this.

Sorry my mistake the model is of an I-15 like the one in the picture , but in Spanish republican service. Not an I-16 as I said.Not necessarily, and by the way, that photo is of a I-15bis. Apparently the rate of turn on the Polikarpov was eye-watering, and they were (in typical Soviet tractor factory fashion) very rugged. There are certainly stories of the I-16 monoplane chewing the tail surfaces of Luftwaffe bombers with its prop, to no detriment of the Poli. It also had similar armament to the Gladiator (4 x MGs), although it was about 10% slower.
