I want to purchase an air brush set to be used in detailing my model railroad. In the past all I've ever used to paint models was spray cans. Which air brush set would you suggest for a novice painter that wants to learn the art?
My understanding of the single-action internal-mix was there was a high degree of adjustment,just not on the fly like the double action.
I've got a Badger 350, which is pretty much a single action entry level airbrush. I use it to paint micro-armor and buildings, but it's best for base coating and such. Any kind of finer detail work, it's not the one.
My friends use Badger 150s, they can paint 3-color camouflage on 1/300 scale microarmor with them, so you should be able to paint N-scale and above. Though we usually use enamels, and not much in the acrylic realm.
I'm thinking about moving to a Paasche, for my HO-scale stuff.... Need to be good with acrylics, since that's what I normally paint with these days. I'm leery of the previous comments regarding the 100XFs with acrylics...., they're used for illustrators and nail artists. I didn't think they'd use enamels for that sort of thing.... I might be interested....
Do most of you use acrylics for model railroad painting?
