Hi all!

After buying a few model kits on discount, I decided to get an entry level airbrush and compressor set.

The most available one I could find are the Tamiya basic compressor set with single-action trigger type airbrush, and the more advanced Tamiya REVO set with double-action trigger-type airbrush.

I'm not sure which one to get, as one is cheap [RM 5XX-6XX] but the other the other one seems more solid, but double the price [RM 13XX]. Honestly, I'm just a casual modeler who's not aiming to win Gunpla contests. I'm just looking for an airbrush where I can lay a smooth even coat of paint on my model kits, and maybe do some exhaust stain shading.

For detailing, I can use "cheapo" methods like masking, weathering kits and using a paint brush.

Any experts out there care to give some advice, please? :salute: :salute: :salute:

My budget is limited to a max of 1k+ (too many HT and Figma PO's), so these two are basically all I can afford. All those super advanced Iwata/Olympos/Badger ones are out of my league.

Also, can anyone recommend a good spray booth that's easy on the wallet? I can't find a respirator, so I'll need one to deal with the fumes. The Tamiya one is super expensive.

Thanks for replying, KAIYODO!

I'll try to head to XL this weekend and see if they still have it in stock.

Now if only someone can advice me on which compressor set to buy... :retard:
