Brush skill is also necessary for painting detail items and adding finishing touches to a model.

another thing for beginners like myself is to break down your airbrush and give it a good cleaning after using.

I recently bought a paasche single action and I love it. Simple to use. The hardest thing I have found with airbrushing, which I have not been doing long, is the mixing. It really is not that difficult either. Mainly trial and error. Mix your paint and thinner, go at it on a piece of paper and if your sastisfied, paint your model.

I was in Hobby Lobby Last night and saw a Panache ( i think) Starter kit for about $25.00. I just started airbrushing myself (Badger 150) and love it. If you mix the paint right and control your spray, you can get great results way before you hit the "experienced" level. Email docarmy@aol.com

I think you will find that Paasche, Badger, Aztec and Iwata are the dominant brands; prices range from around $50. to over $200.
