Title: Air Brush kit
Post by: Sonar on January 20, 2017, 01:52:32 PM
Well due to parkinsons   The shakes  my painting is just as bad as my modeling skills.


Now thinking about an airbrush kit  at least with an airbrush hopefully some of the paint will end up in the right place..


So the question is   what should I be looking for in an airbrush kit.

It has to be for large areas as well as small.

Just bought a near on new airbrush compressor off of gumtree very cheap
Works perfectly. Now what sort of air brush will I be looking for

I would like something to paint hulls  with. And also small detail items

So guessing. Two airbrushes will be required
Any other member advise what I may be looking for...

my daughter bought me an airbrush for christmas with 3 nozzles, the 0.5mm one sprays about an inch wide so can be used for hulls, the fine nozzle for finer detail.
