AIRBRUSH
Popular brands are IWATA, BADGER and AZTEC. I have been using an AZTEC brand for more that 10 years now and very happy with it. If you want your airbrush to last, make sure you always clean it after each use!

Tamiya X20A

ACRYLIC THINNER
To thin acrylic paints you need an acrylic thinner. The brands I use are TAMIYA or GAIANOTES


tamiya paints

TAMIYA PAINTS
TAMIYA paints are very good when it comes to airbrushing. I would suggest that you get hold of following colors: WHITE XF-2, BLACK XF-01, DARK YELLOW XF-60,NATO GREEN XF-67 and EARTH XF-52. Although the are sold and labeled as acrylics, they are actually lacquer paints but can be thinned with lacquer or acrylic thinners.

PLASTIC DROPPER
Plastic dropper is inexpensive but extremely useful when it comes to dispensing thinners. This item is a must for any scale modeller!
