If you are on Facebook then dan tearle is one of the guys to speak to.

He does amazing things with an airbrush.

He’s on here but only posts when one of us is being rude about echo base.

I have a Deag Falcon too that I finished about a year ago now, all I used for mine was a cheapo mini airbrush compressor, you don't really need anything fancy or expensive and you can get amazing results with it even for a rank beginner like me. Something like this is similar to what I have...

As for the actual airbrush gun itself, I went through about 10 of them during the entire build :lol: they just kept getting clogged up too much to the point where it was un-cleanable and would block the spray or spit paint, I don't know if that was because I wasn't cleaning them properly or if they were just cheap shite though.
Chavs are easily startled, but they will soon be back, and in greater numbers
