Neil Woolway added a topic in GeneralPaintHi all first of many silly questions i would expect. Can you tell me what is the best way to go regarding painting my model. Someone briefly metioned about it in my first post that i should use spray paint, i take it they mean small cans like the airesol variety. Or do you think i should go for one of those cheaper airbrushes i take they use the pots of paints, although this method is quite an expensive start i and dont know if i will keep the hobby up (depends how i get on ).
Also when painting do i spray on primer fist (how many coats, and how long between coats), then spray paint, then do i use a clear finish spray.
