Not a very good set Paul, its only single action and I would say the nozzle wouldn't be great. You can get cheaper on eBay

 

Have to agree.

 

Look at this for just a few extra quid - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brand-New-Airbrush-Kit-Includes-Compressor-Lots-of-Accessories-WOW-/190666490331?pt=UK_Crafts_DrawingSupplies_EH&hash=item2c649bc1db

 

You get 2 double action airbrushes (not high quality but certainly good enough to be getting on with) and the compressor has a moisture trap fitted.

I got that set a few years ago, and it did me in good stead, til I burnt it out. Preferrable to the Lidl offering. R

 

What are you planning on spraying and what type of paint are you thinking of using?

 

Don't know anything about spraying, other than the paint sticks to just about everything, plastic, wood, clothes, etc. etc. you get my drift P.

Oh man where to start? Well we had a whopper discussion on this a good few months ago, on what airbrush to buy - http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/485-What-Air-Brush

 

I put up an non-exhaustive list of paints for airbrush thread, might help with deciding what route to go.

Personally I prefer acrylics. Quick drying, less stinky, easier to clean the airbrush. (High Quality Respirator is a must with either) I don't have a fume extraction hood, so the smell of enamels tends to fill up my house. If I had a manshed or garage, I'd use them. I always use enamels though for weathering stock.

Hope that helps.

Good advice guys,as painting anything is the vain of

my life.I would like to get a proper set up some time

in the future when time and money is better,until then

hand painting may do me.

 

Eamonn the hand painted models (121, EGV, and Des's kit) you have done look very good to me. If that technique could be mastered it can give flawless results. I saw some Rocar hand painted models years ago and they were amazing.

 

Rich,
