  1. Thanks a lot all of you for your replies. I took your advise and starting trying different builds and spraying around any surface i could. I bought a tamiya pla-plate and keep practicing on that surface. When i am done i just use windex to clean all the mess and then try again. So far i was able to get some good results (if i even know what a good result is ... 😕 ) with: 7/3/1 (drops) - paint, thinner, airbrush flow improver 8-10 psi with the above setup i was able to get smooth painting but i had to move close to the model.
