I bought a badger model250 airbrush its a syphon feed. it does find for non detail work and some stenciling but the spray pattern is wide and tends to be a little clumpy not a real fine spray like a rattle can ....is internal or external mix better? im useing createx paints

im looking to spend under a $100 and i want to stick with badger cause the local hobbie store has them and i have a 40% coupon

Besides the wide fan, it sounds more like a paint issue. Try playing with the pressure to the gun and thin the paint.

I agree with Downriver....I had the same problem until I got a pressure regulator. If you don't have on make sure to get one it will make your life a lot easier.

im agreeing with everyone else on this one. It took me bout a month to figure out my airbrush, amount of preasure and the mixture of the paints.
