    The best paint? hmmmm dont know about that one I just use testors model paint and mix it on a piece of cardboard untill I get the right color then I mix it in a glass jar depending on how much I'm going to need.

    The airbrish paint to thinner ratio is 3 parts thinner to one part paint, you have to really thin it out or the gun gets cloged up.

    since its on topic, whats a good airbrush model? I had one about five years ago, god knows what happened to it, i could really use that thing now. I remember the air compressor being loud as hell, how noisy are new ones these days?

    Cheers!

    I use Badger, its a great airbrush, and its made from stainless steel, I have had some others that have rusted.
