Hi everyone,

I need to paint some kits now. What is a good airbrush, compressor, spraybooth? I guessing I will spend about 300 for all 3. Do I need a tank? Do decompressed still sputter?

If there is a forum let me know. I am sure this question has come up before.

Thanks

Munkyslut Hi Matthew, where are you in the world?

Munkyslut Ah well then I reckon 300 bucks will get you all you want straight off eBay.
A decent airbrush & small compressor could be had for around $150, leaving you plenty to buy or build a decent sized booth.
A few of the mates on here have built their own
4. March, 21:07
Matthew Stec Thanks I saw YouTube videos on building a booth. I thinking of buying one to get it up and running fast. I am thinking of a master airbrush kit. I am also leaning twords a tank.
4. March, 21:16
Paul Juliano Hi Matthew. I think you're in good hands with Munky. There's a collapsible spray booth (also by Master, I believe) that's available on Amazon and eBay. I had it and it's decent, but when I was sure I was into the hobby 100% I got something larger and more permanent (https://pacepaintbooth.com/).

When you say "tank" do you mean a compressor with a tank or a cylinder of CO2? I'd definitely want a tank on my compressor, otherwise it'd run all the time and those can be pretty loud. CO2 cylinders are great, from what I hear, if you can get them.
4. March, 21:25
Matthew Stec I was looking for an air tank for the compressor. I do not know if the compressors still paulse.
4. March, 21:34
Paul Juliano All the compressors I've ever used have an integrated tank.
4. March, 21:41
Matthew Stec Cool in 30 years they fixed a fea few things ;)

Robert W Martel I have an older Iwata SmartJet (no tank) that I bought years ago on eBay. It works quite well, it will keep up a constant 25+ psi without sputtering at all. I've also been wanting to try a master G77 or 79. I heard they work pretty well if you get a good one right off. If you have Amazon prime that's pretty reasonable. You can use it for a while and if you don't like it send it back. Amazon is great about returning stuff as long as its prime! I'm using a Paasche Talon, pretty decent airbrush & fully adjustable (air valve & paint flow) or open it all up and use as double action. Not perfect, but works pretty well.
I think most any compressor with a tank would serve you just fine. Airbrushes are much more varied, but I'd start with an inexpensive one and go from there.
27. March, 05:07
Matthew Stec Thanks Robert. I have been looking at the master airbrushes. Over a some YouTube's who use them.
27. March, 16:37
Robert W Martel I would think those would do you just fine to start out with. It's all about practice! Somewhere on Google there are some airbrush practice patterns, I started there. First thing you gotta do is be able to put the paint where you want it!, that alone takes a bit of practice. Then you have to learn how to thin you're paint so it sprays right. I started with cheap craft paint thinned with a 1-1 mix of dollar store 50% Iso Alcohol [IPA] & Distilled water $1 a gallon. Or if you live where you can buy windshield washer fluid [anti freeze type], that's only couple dollars a gallon and works pretty well. Some just use water!! As you get better with the AB, then start using better paints & thinners.
Model paints are EXPENSIVE !!! You don't want to waste $$$ till you get confident with the AB.
Good Luck & Have Fun !! Experiment !!
