Hey Gusy!

Can you guys recommend me a excellent airbrush?

I'm looking at Badgers or Iwatas, but I really can't decide. I plan on using it for modeling, but also smaller art projects/paintings. I want a dual action per my friends recommendation, but what should I get?

Edit:

I am a retard and should read previous posts before replying. Any other good airbrushes people can recommend?

Edit2: To add: I have a compressor already, but its a shop compressor. Do I NEED to buy a hobby one? I am assuming there would be adapters + maybe a fine tune regulator I can buy instead of buying a smaller airbrush-only compressor.

Hey Gusy!

Just picked up a used Iwata Eclipse HP-BCS + Sparmax compressor from a pawn shop for 70bux out the door.

Even though its not a gravity feed, I think this airbrush is going to do me quite nicely

Hey Gusy!

Where do you guys suggest I buy parts/accessories for my new airbrush from?

I need to do a little overhaul in getting a new needle and some lubrication/cleaner and a lot of the local shops don't carry Iwata stuff.

Hey Gusy!

Not really models, but prebuild+painted, look up the Hot Toys Alien/Predator action figures if you want to see a quality AvP figure.

They are so freaking detailed its disgusting. I really should have gotten the Hicks when I had a chance

Hey Gusy!

Christ I have learned more from Masa Narita's walk-thrus and general modeling info than I ever knew before. This man is a genius.

Ha! What an awesome thread. To the dude building the Oceanic 815, godspeed. That is freaking sweet! I worked at a hobby store when I was sixteen - twenty-two. My hobby was the RC stuff, and I am going to join the "Scale" along with radio controlled.
Too contribute to the thread, this thing is radio controlled (not mine).



I will be working on building a scale rock crawler (probably not as awesome as this one) over the next few weeks.

Uhh...wtf that is awesome. The wheels are too white though.
