Thewifey replied to Thewifey's topic in Welcome! Introduce Yourselfthank you! I've seen some airbrush kits that come with the compressor, hose, gun (I don't know what it's really called but that's what I call the part that the paint comes out of) and a few paints. Usually around $150. Are those worth it or are they low quality? also I know the #1 car that he wants to build but I can only find it on amazon. Is amazon an ok place for these kinds of things?
Thewifey posted a topic in Welcome! Introduce YourselfHello! I'm here looking for help, I built a few models a lifetime ago with my stepdad but that's it. I was about 5 so I have no idea what we used or what we needed. My husband built models as a kid up into his teenage years but when life got busy he didn't have the time to keep doing it and lost all his stuff over the years. He likes models he has to pain. I want to get him everything he needs to start back buolding with for Christmas but I have no idea where to start. I at least want to get the basics and then I can get him the "fancy" stuff that's just nice to have for other gifts. My question is what are the basics? He mentioned air brushing and small air compressors in conversation but I didn't want to press much I want it to be a surprise. Also, what's the best place to buy equipment and supplies from? Including build kits? What kind of paint do I need to get for airbrushing? I know I don't know the lingo here but this is something I really want to do for my hard working husband. I craft, sew, and cut vinyl so I want to give him a section of my art room for his art too ❤️ Thanks in advance for your help!
