I just bought a $60 airbrush & kit which came with everything such as a compressor, cleaning. I have read some said dont buy cheap airbrush as it may not give good result. Personally, I just donít want to invest too much since I am a beginner in airbrushing. Do I really need to spend a good amount to get a good airbrush? Eventually, I might upgrade but for now I am only planning to paint the interior and engine components.

Most say you're okay with a cheap one and I tend to agree. Most important thing is taking it apart and cleaning it after every colour for best results. That was the most expensive lesson for me.

Thanks. I will keep that in mind. Sorry for asking too much questions. Just needed the clarifications. Time to take some actions to see the results.

Many thanks to all for the feedbacks!! Appreciate  all the help!

What do you guys use to test your new paint on? A lot of people use spoons but I think thats only to see how the colors look like. Some suggested using the same spruce that you removed the kit parts from which I think makes sense since they are from the same type of plastic so you know if the paint would cause a reaction.
