I may be able to help you out with the information you require, I've managed to try most paints over the years, P3, GW, Foundry, Plaka, Tamiya, Humbrol, Invicta, Windsor & Newton Oils, Andrea and Vallejo, probably a few others I've forgotten about as well. In my opinion, Vallejo are one of the best on the market, I predominantly use Model Air because of it's superior viscosity and pigment suspension without the need for additional thinning, however, it's not that suitable for any type of wash, better sticking to thinned down inks or Model Colour. Airbrush painting can be fun, use a decent compressor with trap to avoid spitting, as Phil previously commented Iwata is a really fine budget airbrush, I have a Devilbiss which cost a lot more than was warranted. I also use various chemicals in order to alter the viscosity of my paints (horses for courses), but one of the best tips I can give you, is to drop a ballbearing into every pot of paint, helps so much to mix. I have approx 2500-3000 pots of paint here, so if you want to try before you buy, your welcome.

One again, thanks for the offer to take a look at the pait range Chainsaw.
I'm going to leave the airbrush for now as I'm going to be shelling out for models and paints etc. will revisit the airbrush once I have all the essentials.
Ill be starting with a German force so am considering both these starter sets to get me going.

I'm also going to grt some of the GW Ink washes.
What is the opinion on my starter sets? Anything essential missing?

As you are planning on using Vallejo and are aiming to use Fallschirnjaeger, here are some guides for you:

http://www.warlordgames.com/store/bolt- ... t-set.html

I believe all use Vallejo paints and will give you the colours best for the figures, plus some painting tips if you need them. I always use things like this to help me choose. I am also planning on changing my paints and am hoping to start using Vallejo myself.

One thing to remember, when painting Fallschirmjager, is that they took a fierce pride in being Luftwaffe, although they were later officially seconded to the Werhmacht. They jealously guarded their Luftwaffe uniform (worn under the smock) and it was only late in the war that they began wearing Feldgrau trousers rather than the Luftwaffe blue.

So after having a little success with GW's air gun & aircan. I now want a fairly decent budget to mid-range air brush & compressor. Any tips on what to buy & what to avoid?

From research I did, this model seems to be the dogs mate

A nice close up look at the infinity brush

They also have a starter model (last item on page)

When I eventually get the cash for an airbrush ill be going for the infinity CRplus.

Cheers Robbie, wow! There's some expensive air brushes on there. I'm looking at £60-£70 max.

Some of their starter kits don't look too bad. ;)

The Ultra 2 in 1 will probably do the job at that price Daz. I'm looking to use it for artwork as well as modelling so the Infinity model would be my personal choice.

The air brush I have got with my compressor is officialy :censored: .... it's ok for undercoating but anything involving detail.... Nope!

So can anyone recommend a good airbrush on a very tight budget (£50 ish')?

the stuff on there are pretty good, steer clear of cheapies. i used to use a DeVilbiss or iwata for the model trains.

Pick one in your price bracket then look for vids about it on youtube
