Hi, I'm Invincible. I've been building kits for a few years now and use a brush to paint the things. I like to think that I do quite well but obviously I have to refrain from soft-edged Camouflages. I prefer building tanks and have no preference between link and length or rubber band tracks.

Cheerio mate!

I don't know how you do it with a brush. Last time I brush-painted a kit I was 11 and used the Testors paint straight from the pot. Probably added 3 millimeters to the overall size of the model! Props on you for being able to do it.

That being said, there's a few guys in here with some good airbrushes for sale in the classified ads. You can also score a good deal on the eBay. Look at getting yourself a gun, hose, and compressor for less than $100US. It'll change your entire experience and turn you into a machine!

Hi, and be welcome!

Yo can share also some of your work here. And as Christian says, the next step is, once you feel ready, getting an airbrush. I agree also it really makes a difference.
