I do own two air brushes (one a gift, the other won at a contest) and haven't used them in years. I do mainly light commercial and weathered models so I'm not concerned about mirror finishes.   I use mostly automotive paint like Duplicolor in rattle cans. I get the finish I'm looking for and will spray the smallest parts, seldom brush painting anything.

I am kind of addicted to my AB. I prefer it to hand painting or spray cans, although I also use both. In order: AB, can, hand. I probably use it even when it's not necessary and paint one or two small parts - wasting time and thinner to clean - but, as I said, I really like using it.

I am about 50/50 AB/cans on large parts like bodies, though.

. Pretty much. Hate brush painting with a passion. An evvvvverything. Engines, suspensions, frames and bodies. Though for bodies and floors I use my half pint touch up gun for the wider spray pattern
