    Jan 1, 2010, 10:30 PM - New to painting and need to find an airbrush. #1

    Hey guys. I'm buying some shin tools, and I need an airbrush to paint some of their features. I'm not looking for serious equipment, just something to get me by, and for cheap. Is this basically all i need?:

    Sorry it's a link and not an image. I'm not to HTML savvy.


    Thanks.

    I recomend getting a double action airbrush instead of single action.

    You can go to a hobby shop or plastic modelling shops and ask. You will need a compressor also.

    I bought a cheap airbrush from Harbor Freight, it looks just like that one. It was a complete waist of money. It just splattered, and was barely adjustable. I bought a $100 Iwata, and it's awesome. Uses less paint and has so much more adjustment and control.

    I use the Paasche VL Dual action.

    I ended up buying a simple one from my local hobby shop. For what i need to paint, it'll do fine.
