    Thanks Nap,

    We have here a local importer/distributor with relatively competitive prices for a variety of modelling supplies, and I was interested in trying those brushes he imports. He will bring some samples to our club's meeting tomorrow. I will try to test them and report

    Best,

    Hi all,

    Had an opportunity to test two brushes (size 0, size 1) from Springer Pinsel 1854 Kolinski sable series (with the white breeches of my 28mm Dominique Jean Larrey)

    I am quite inexperienced, and it was also a short, non-scientific trial. I used them with Vallejo acrylics. Judging from the short painting session, I was pleased with them. They fill comfortable to hold, they held their point just fine. I still lack experience to judge and compare their paint holding capacity, and what part of my visible brush strokes are due to my technique (diluting the paint, working with the troublesome white, etc.) or the brush itself.
    At about 4.8 euro (local price) and 2.8 euros (price at their website) per brush, I think I'll give them a shot. If they prove to be good, I'll order more sizes (000, 00, 2)

    Cheers,

    Benny
