hi guys im new to model car building, I have built a few kits but nothing worth talking about, im 23 years old a father of a 3 year old boy, im into lowriders, ratrods, tattoos, and BMWs. im ready to start all over and up my game. I have ordered a compressor, 3 airbrushes, a dozen water based paint from parma faskolor, a lot of brushes, glue and sand paper. I also have a few question is it better to airbrush primer and clear if so I don't know what clear and primer to use, so I bought

Welcome to the forum. You will get many different answers to your questions.  I use acrylic paints and found  Plastikote primer and Future for the clear work the best for me.
