And the example it will be finished as using left over parts and decals from a Meng Panther.

Thank you! Yes all settled in although spent Christmas and New Year alone (not by choice). But I understand that my family have their respective families. And Christmas is for families.

Thank you! I always shied from using an airbrush as I always thought I'd make a right pig's ear of it. My friend has invited me to use his airbrush more often.

Good news Daz.

Your best bet is to save up and get a cheap compressor and use the Badger as they are great starter brushes. Think of them as Russian tractors, crude but bullet proof!

The Neo🤮is not an Iwata and from having had the misfortune to play with one they are not great tbh. Get a good one and it’ll be fine till the little ‘o’ring on the nozzle splits or degrades and it will since you use enamels. Get a bad one and it’ll put you off airbrushing forever.

Start with the Badger and once you are confident get a Mr Procon boy which apparently come out the same factory as Iwata’s, but mucho cheaperer.

You could of course get an H&S, but I have an Infinity which makes a wonderful doorstop!:sofa:

I don't use enamels any more. I use acrylics now due to the drying time. I've seen an compressor for £30 so will probably start off with that.
