    i'm not a total airbrush noob, but i know nothing about the actual hardware - what should i be looking at picking up for modeling and general TF-sized malarky.

    brandnames, pro tips, links, or just what kit you're using atm - anything you can throw at me would be much appreciated.

    cheers :)

    actually i did miss one imporant piece of info from my first post - i'm in the UK. which UK-based retailers are my best bet for buying a compressor/airbrush kit? there is lots of advice on us retailers but importing a compressor from many of these sites would cost silly amounts.

    i will hunt and kill the first person to post a link to a search for 'uk airbrush retailer' ;)

    A google search of UK Airbrush Supplies turns up quite a bit, I was going to lmgtfy, but I was feeling nice.

    Google's personal recommendations are influenced, i suspect, by factors other than the great service the suppliers have provided them in the past. i'm not entirely convinced that Google even buy many airbrushes! :p 

    but thankyou again for all your help, it has been very.

    excellent, i'll check that out. the DDl version is a nice touch too, my house is far too cluttered for any more print mags these days!
