    it all depends on what you're painting...

    painting shit like motorcycle frames and tanks and stuff is an art within itself...

    airbrushing's fun but noisy unless you can afford canned air. i don't know.. i made these sweet bob marley shirts that i was trying to hustle at the local graffiti/hip-hop/art festival in the summer but none of the local thugs wanted to buy them because they werent size 3XL or pink or something.

    petrol tanks? wierd

    well they were just examples, you must have seen the chopper bike petrol tanks painted up?? i were just sayin that to give an example of the detail id need.
    so any decent airbrush will do then?

    When I did realism shit for Tower Records / Video I used an Aiwata Pro model airbrush and a large compresser so the tank wouldn't fill up every two minutes. If you're just doing easy come easy go stuff then you can get away with just about any airbrush and be fine. It all depends on what you want to do with it.

    airbrushing is pretty fun. i took a class in high school for it. i think we used Aztek airbrushes. they weren't professional or anything but they served their purpose.

    i have a pasche airbrush... it works well except this one kid messed it up kinda, but i think i fixed it. those things are so complicated. rule #1 never take your airbrush apart.

    invest in frisket film and exacto knives and thick paper
