Got me an airbrush (only took me about 5 years).

Got me a airbrush kit.

Went ahead and got me one of these which ive been wanting for years. Never really had a look at the price of these set-ups but ti turns out that the the price ain't all the at bad. For £100 i got all the gear i need to get started.

This received aload of bits and pieces which i can't quite figure out if i'll need. Got 2 airbrushes, the one below is the one i reckon i will be using the most. Its the type i see alot of modellers using on blogs and in the video tutorials ive watched on youtube, great way to learn watching them.

 The new airbrush.

Just ordered some paints, never really thought abut it before but the paint i mostly use from Citadel are not to be used in the airbrush as there acrylics. The acrylics glop up inside airbrushes, which then make the unusable except Vallejos which i plan on using.

Itching to us this.

seven6398 - Did'nt realise it would be the size it is, think because it can have 2 airbrushed going at once, compared to my friend's it huge. The other airbrush seems to be one that you put the paint in a jar that connects underneath, tried it out with water and it really paints a large area. Reckon it will lack what is taken to model HG gundam.

eviltedix43 - Thanks, hopoing for good results, planning on doing using it on a Rick Dom first.

I can't wait to see what you can do with this thing, I've been thinking about picking up a newer airbrush, mine is so old and I think I ruined it during college putting some non airbrush quality paint through it.
