PostSubject: Airbrushing   Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:46 am

Two weekends ago, our fellow namesake to whom I shall refer to as Grover was over at my abode.  He came over for a model painting / assembly session, which allowed me the chance to try out his airbrush.  I wanted to try one before committing myself on buying one because of the price and because of my hand; for those who don't know, my hand cramps up and my fingers locked if gripped in the same position for a certain amount of time.  For those that might be concerned, no, it doesn't happen all the time; I'm not too worried, so please don't be either.

Anyway, the airbrush was of the same type I've been wanting: gravity feed dual action.  And it worked beautifully.  My hand didn't cramp up at all, and the dual action control was easier to control than what I thought it would have been.  While I may still prefer a trigger style assembly, the control was just fine.  A big bonus for me, one that I hadn't even known about until playing with it, was to simply blast a freshly painted mini with air, ridding the model of excess paint within the detailed areas... this gave the models a "natural" shadowed or wash effect.

I can see a need for a table cover and a backdrop, but my original plans of acquiring a paint booth are unwarranted.  I could barely detect any fumes or odor.  Different paints may give different fume levels, but I wasn't concerned; likewise, no one upstairs could smell anything.  According to Grover, he paints right in his living room, and his wife and child don't complain or seem to notice any odors either.

Last weekend I went down to Green Bay and priced a few different airbrushes.  Sadly, it seems that Hobbytown and Hobby Lobby are way above my income level as far as those tools are concerned.  Having price checked these online, I was not going to buy just an airbrush while "shopping local" when I could get an airbrush starter kit and compressor online for the same price.

Monday, I ordered my airbrush.  Or rather, my airbrushes.

I found this on eBay for $110.  Why did I go with this?  Wait, allow me to post a picture first.




I ordered this mainly because it came with the three brushes.  I could have gotten something a little cheaper, but those came with one brush.  I like the fact that this has two gravity feed dual actions (2mm and 3mm) plus the single action siphon feed.  I'm thinking the single action will be good for priming, with the two duals for everything else.  I'll save the 2mm for when I get some experience in.  And look!  Cleaning accessories and a how to manual!

This will be arriving no later than February 23.  The details are below.
