Default AirBrush Kit

GM,

I wanted to get a recommendation for a basic airbrush kit with compressor.

I will be mainly using it to paint lexan bodies.

Thanks,
AC

Alex,
I have used a Paasche double action, internal mix, siphon feed, airbrush it would be great for those Lexan car bodies.
It falls short on the third and larger scale model airplane cowls I wanted to use it for,
I purchased a small touch-up gun from Harbor Freight and it works well on those large cowls, I can get a quality paint job from it!
You can go to the Big Box stores and pickup a small two gallon tanked compressor, I purchased a Husky it even came with
a small brad nailer it will give you all the air you'll need for an airbrush.
Hope this helps,
Bob

Im currently looking around for a starter airbrush kit, and was wondering if anyone might have any recommendations re: brands, important accessories, etc. Currently Im considering getting the Timbertech Airbrush Kit with Compressor ABPST05 set on Amazon.
