I'm going to start painting my first helmet in the upcoming week hopefully. I purchased an airbrush with a compressor, but I still need to buy all the paints, so I want to do that as soon as I can.
Only problem is that I have no idea how much I'm going to be needing since I haven't had any experience in airbrushing.
Humbrol sells their paints in 14ml quantities, now I'm sure that will be more than enough for let's say the yellow kill stripes or even the mandibles, but how about the dome (Since the surface area is much larger)? If it's enough for the dome, how many times would I be able to paint a dome again with just the 14ml can? Just curious because I'll probably be painting more helmets down the line, so I might even just stock up on certain colors that require more.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
