    Hi Dominique,
    I don ' t know if I can help you because i use the airbrush only for military modelling on airplanes, I often think about use it also on figure and probably I would try , if you want to use it only for figures i think better for you buy directly a 1.5 mm , I don't know if you have experience with it , you have to pay attention on the pressure and use the colour very thinned , i suggest you acrilic , for me Gunze Sangyo are the best for airbrush and you can thin them well with alcohol . I hope this can help you ...

    I use an Iwata HP-BH........

    ...... for the same purpose that you have in mind. From memory, I think it is 0.15mm but may be mistaken.
    I have used it with Alclad primer; Humbrol & WEM enamels; Tamiya, Lifecolor, Xtracrylics and Polyscale acrylics; artist oil paints.
    The paint needs to be well thinned and in good condition otherwise you will get problems with blockages.
    I also have a Badger 250 which has a bigger nozzle which is also handy for primer/undercoating, especially if you want to cover larger surfaces such as for the occasional tank or aircraft.
    If you are new to airbrushing, prepare yourself for some "fun & games" until you get the knack of it!
