This is what I am doing right now since my model room is being converted to a living room for my mother in law who will be moving in with us soon, I will then be converting my 10x15 shed into a model room which will be outside the house so that might work out ok for me if you get what I mean. lol
RIP John you taught me so much thanks for all the time you took to help me along with my modeling. We also shared a passion for these special cars, not sure you ever got to see the finished product of my 1:1 so here you go buddy a pic of mine with my son riding shotgun on her maiden voyage. Hope you get to look down and have smile at this one. Thanks again for all the time you took up with me teaching and encouraging. Your friend Bob.
Bill I'm glad you started this thread because I'm in the exact same position as you, I have know idea what questions to even ask let alone any point of reference to make a decision on what A/b to buy. One other resource you might want to try would be to go to YouTube and see what some of the air brush guys are doing with various types and brands of a/b I'm sure there are lots of clips on how to do what with the various different a/b's. I still may end up trying the harbor freight deal myself just to get started pretty cheap way to go if you ask me.
