    "they are too busy making chop suey"
    Nope. I doubt that Rick.
    Chop-suey is a creation of our American brothers.
    A sort of mishmash of Chinese dishes / ingredients adapted to American fast food preferences - 'All In' πŸ€”.
    I don't think that a Chinese chef worth his Sichuan pepper would dream of making Chop-suey😠
    I just know that I never ever saw anything remotely like that on a menu during my visits to China.
    In some 'Γ©tablissements' in Beijing I'd probably have been thrown out if I'd even asked for it!πŸ€•
    But; whatever tickles your paletteπŸ˜‰
    Bon appΓ©tit, enjoy your meal (ι‚¦ι˜Ώεˆ‡η‰Ή, θ«‹δΊ«η”¨πŸ˜‹)
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Brian,

    My better half replaced my old 'cheapy' with a set from Amazon and these are the current prices -

    GANZTON Airbrush Set Double Action Trigger Paint Spray Gun Kit Professional Sprayer Air Paint Control Gun with 0.2mm/0.3mm/0.5mm 9cc CUP for Makeup,Tattoos,Cake Decorating,Crafts @Β£29.99 +

    ABEST High Quality Dual Action Airbrush Compressor Complete kit Paint Tool for Art-and-Craft Projects Tattoo Hobby Model Craft Spraying AC06K30W @ Β£34.99

    The second airbrush is crud - BUT, the compressor is good enough for anything from very fine lines at low pressure to whole hulls - it's worth binning the cheap ABEST airbrush to get that alone, or just use it for general priming coats.

    The Ganzton airbrush is amazing for the price.
    I did polish the needle first, but it's as good as a 'posh' one a mate lent me to try out. Not the cheapest way of doing it, but after a year and a half, it's still going great guns and I ain't changing it for the foreseeable future.

    By the way I'm no Amazon fan, but wifey likes 'em so for once they did a good job.

    Cheers Andy

    Hi Martin,
    They all work well with the correct cleaning and maintenance. Considering you buy half a dozen cheap ones for the price a basic Badger. Just use some old fashioned pipe cleaners!
    I use a Chinese Panel beaters touch up gun that holds about 200ml on a 45 PSI line for major painting.😊😊

    Ian,
    The other good thing is if a cheap airbrush stops performing as it should then you just strip it down and keep the useful bits such as the 'O' rings.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Most of them work well with a bit of tuning and maybe a replacement O ring!
