Revenge----- Rattle cans are OK for painting, but if you enter the world of airbrushing, you will never look back. The colors available are light years ahead of stock spray cans, and the refinement of the final texture of the surface is far superior. This may cause the heavens to storm around here, but I would invest in a Paasche Model H set, the simplest of all, and the workhorse for many AB artists who go back to it in spite of their super-techno stable. There is a steep-but-short learning curve which requires practice on old card board box sides, etc., but you'll quickly master the basics. Also, a simple Harbor Freight-type small compressor is a must-- never mind the overrated "Airbrush Compressors". I know the initial expense and learning period seem daunting, but you'll feel a gigantic rush of progress in your modeling.

A whole new world, eh Mikeai?? AND, the Blessed Rev has a big compressor so that he can get a small portable tank ( or even an inner tube--- I had a big tractor tube for awhile that drove the Ex-Admiral into a sputtering rage) and refill it as necessary. I see the model H kits with all three tip sizes for around fifty bucks USA. Add a 25 buck tank, and maybe an el cheapo regulator, and you're in business for well under $100. As said, a huge leap forward....
