Single action (press for air, twist needle for paint) Badger 350 (??) is a good starter brush. Easy to clean, simple to operate. Get an in-line paint strainer to keep chunks from gumming up the works.
Testors makes a series of intro brushes, some like em, some hate em.
Canned air (Testors airbrush propellant $8+ per can) is expensive. A cheap compressor, Sears w no storage tank and a bit on the loud side >$100 is a good investment. Many folks use CO2, but I haven't given that a try yet.
Lots of better (read as: More $$$) compressors out there. With and with out tanks, with and without built in regulators moisture traps etc..
Lots of lines, long gone are the days of square bottle white label Testors.
Lots of acrylic (water cleanup) and enamels (turpentine clean up)
Acrylics: Poly Scale, Model Master, Tamiya, Gunze Sanyo and more I'm sure
Enamels Gunze, Model Master, and many specialty paints for cars, boats, whatever.
couple of options, Testors makes a black diamond shaped bottle with a metal needle for applying glue that is thinner than their tube stuff and thincker than the bottle and brush stuff.
Testors also makes a purple label bottle of liquid glue that comes in a glass bottle with a brush inside the cap. The brush is really too large, but get a retired natural hair brush and use it for percise application
Tenax 7 is a pretty 'hot' chemincal (MeK?) that bonds plastic almost instantly, again with the brush. I cant make their capilary action glass tube work for me, I get it gunked up.
Superglue and an accellerator. drip or toothpick the glue in place, brush the accellerator above the joint and let it run in. Inatant bond.
sorry, can't help ya there.. I'm a tank guy
Run don't walk to

I am not an employee, but a VERY happy long term member who gets the membership for a yearly birthday gift.
No, there is no background check for "Master " status, just some marketing.. Still I thinkI read if you spend $300 + a year, you save significantly and that is if you buy your own membership.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, perhaps you've misunderstood the situation.
