Hello, my name is Brian, and I am brand new to this newsgoup. I look
forward to hearing your comments.
A bit of background info b4 I get to my question. Basically I want
to start building models w/my son. I used to build then when I was
younger and loved doing it. I now want to step up to an airbrush to paint
the models. They will be mostly car and plane models. Glue together from
a box type, (for now). I want to paint them using an airbrush. I have
been looking at several different brands and types and am getting
confused. Seems to me the two major ones are Badger and Paashe. My
budget is about 120.00 for the airbrush kit. I have a compressor already.
It is a huge one i use for my nailguns but I beleive it will work for
this application. While looking thru the ads I see there is single action
and double action. (1) I am not sure what the difference is. I don't want
to go cheap just because I am starting out. I want something that will
last and I can pass it on so to speak. Something that will give me no
problems when properlly used and cared for. That is why I allowed 120 for
the airbrush. I am hoping at the price I can get a good one. I want
flexibility w/types of paints. I would like to experiment w/different
types. See what type of paint yeilds what type of finish...In addition to
your suggestions, I would like to know where to shop on the net. I am off
to my local (well semi-local) hobby shop to get a hands on feel and pick
up a few models w/my son, who is dying to get started.
Well I am done rambling. I thank you for taking time to read and
reply w/and and all knowledge on the subject.
TIA Brian C.W.
