An airbrush can take your painting to an all new level. There's a learning curve for sure, but once you have the techniques down, and there are many great ones, you can create paint jobs on models like you never have before.

Airbrushes have been around for decades, but with todays models, especially with weathering, shading, from military tanks to aircraft to monster figures. The airbrush has made these models better looking as far as how much more realistic they appear.

Big companies like Badger, Paasche, Iwata, Harder & Steenbeck, just to name a few, offer different kinds of airbrushes to cover any kind of work. Single action and dual action.


An airbrush cleaning pot is so you can lay your airbrush on it, as a stand, but more importantly, you can shoot access paint into it to clear the nozzle. If you run water or paint thinner through it to clean your airbrush, you can do tha too.

It safely goes into the jar at the bottom of the pot, which you can empty and clean out later. These are especially useful if you swap out paint colors on the go during a paint session.

There are also various styles of airbrush air compressors.

The empty jars and containers are for storing custom made paint blends you may have mixed, but want to save for later use again.

Masking tape is used to mask off areas that you don't want to the paint to cover. The Tamiya tape is known for its clean lines, though other tapes can give you similar results.

The wide tape is good to cover large areas quickly to protect from stray paint and masking off large parts. These kinds of tape only have a tacky backing, so they won't leave residue on your model, or be impossible to remove later after you've painted.

A paint mask is good to have, just because you don't want to be breathing paint fumes. Especially lacquers.

If you can smell the paint you're shooting - you're breathing it. That's not good.

Stay safe!
