Yeah thats the one in his vids. It is compatble with most aircompressors, as long as you have the correct hose connector which I believe is 1/8".

Hi all,

As long as it's undercover and kept dry, I don't see any real issues.

So, after failing on my MG Freedom wings with hand paint, I'm really considering getting an airbrush now. The only reason I haven't gone for an airbrush is because I can't find anywhere to do it. Which is why I'm here posting this, maybe some of you can give me some advice. I don't have a garage or a back shed where I can set up an airbrushing station. Most of my work is done in my room.. Is there any safe way to airbrush in the house?

I've had a look at spray booths, but it seems like the exhaust needs some way to exit the house? My windows are lined with mesh cloth so there's no way the spray booth's tube (excuse my poor wording!) can get outside.

I'm at a complete loss and would appreciate any suggestions right now!

I know this isnt preferred, but I actually do my airbrushing outdoors, along with drying outdoors. That is in the open, not under any cover. I havent had any issues with dirt or dust wrecking the paint job. But I guess this is just me.

Hey, i'm looking at purchasing a starter airbrush and compressor, and i came across this kit on ebay. What do you guys reckon?
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mini-Airbrush-Compressor-Kit-AS176-Kit-1-/130657333152?pt=UK_ToysGames_ModelKits_ModelKits_JN&hash=item1e6bc8afa0#ht_637wt_1085

It seems very cheap, even considering the exchange rate, and that people are going to bid the price up. But is it going to be rubbish? Yay or nay?

It's compact and possibly quiet, suit those apartment types. The shipping is quite expensive, and given it's overseas, the 12 month warranty is useless. From past auction results, it will go up to between 60-90 AUD + shipping.

I don't see a HP rating specified everywhere - the higher the better. My new compressor is the cheapo one you can get from ebay.au for ~70 delivered. Even though it has a tiny tank, It really sucks when it takes 20 seconds for the thing to charge up to reasonable pressure and there's just a feeling you can't go long on max pressure at all. Luckily painting gundams typically doesn't need higher than 30 psi but sometimes you want high flow for gloss/big coverage.

Ok, thanks for the advice, guys, probably going to avoid it then. Can anyone recommend a good starter kit; ie. airbrush, compressor, and everything else i'd need (hoses, moisture trap etc)? It doesn't matter if i have to purchase airbrush/compressor separately, as long as i can get everything i'd need for a reasonable price, and reasonable quality. I suppose that is asking a lot..... ;)

These guys sell a good product I purchased mine from there and I believe Xenomorph got his from there too
Decent little compressor, air brush is a cheapy but as long as you clean it you can get plenty of use out of it

I have read quite a few of the pages yes, but everyone seems to have different and specific needs. I do not have that much money to spend, i should have mentioned that I am hoping to get an airbrush and compressor for about $200 (less if possible), perhaps that is an unrealistic expectation for something that won't break though. ;)
I also have no previous experience so something relatively easy to use would be helpful as well. I've looked at a lot of the suggestions in the thread, but most of them seem a little over my budget, which is, well, budget-price lol.
Someone suggested Runway 13, they seem really good, their prices seem really reasonable if their products are as good as they seem, but again, it might be a bit more than i have to spend.

Thanks Hemish, that seems like a really good deal, right around my price range too. If i decide to upgrade the airbrush at a later date, I can always keep the comp so that seems like a good option with long term in mind as well, thanks mate! :)

I think am probably going to get this      http://www.hobbyserv.com.au/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=135

I really don't have the knowledge to tell if it's good quality or not, but it seems pretty reasonable. What do you guys reckon?

The airbrush is would be good, but the compressor doent seem like itll last. Id spend a little more to se a decent compressor. Try Princess Trade on ebay or their website. Aussie seller with pretty cheap and good compressors.
