    Not sure about the brush, but had a thread on here asking about compressors for one, so you might want to look that up.

    Re: Airbrush recommendations?

    I have 2 airbrushes.

    Both are Badger.

    My first one is a Badger model 200 NH. It is what I use for costume parts, for laying down base coats. I use that for weathering also. It is single action, meaning one push means both paint and air come out. It has been serving me well for about 4 or so years now.


    My other airbrush is a Badger Renegade Velocity, it is great for automobile detail painting. And it is a Double Action, which means, you press down for air and pull back for paint.


    Now those are what I have. Head over to www.airbrush.com, and ask around there what they prefer.

    I own a Badger whirlwind compressor. If noise doesnt bother you, it has served me well.

    Also..if you have a good place to purchase them...possibly online that is reliable..if you want PM me in case it is something the admins dont want as public info? Not sure how that goes.

    Personally, I love my Aztec A470 - it's easy to clean - interchangable nozzels are really cool (and color coded) - I've been using for about 10 years now - solid.

    I use an air compressor - the Senco PC1010 - does the job just fine.
