jefferyt Posted May 19, 2021 Share #1 Posted May 19, 2021 I am fairly new building wooden ship models with only one prior project. In my younger days (and a few more recently since retired) a built a wide variety of models, primarily plastic. I usually relied on spray cans and paint and brush when working on these kits. About a year and half ago I purchased Billings Smit Rotterdam for my first wooden ship kit. I should state that this wasn't my effort at working in wood; I used to build rc planes at one time. While the Smit Rotterdam turned out ok (for a beginner I think it turned out good) it could have been better in a few ways. I have acquired a few tools to improve the build itself but I am pondering about investing in an airbrush setup and I'm sure of its value on large scale kits. I am awaiting the arrival of Billings HMS Victory (BB498). From what I have read, many would consider this to be a bit more than I could chew, but I like a challenge. I digress, in short, is the investment of a few hundred dollars towards an airbrush setup worth it?
