    Hi all!

    I'm currently living in Sydney Australia - Very new to airbrushing, currently trying to get the hand of it for miniatures and scale models but i'd like to get to the point where I can use my developed skills for detail work. Self teaching which can be a problem so advice and experience is always warm and welcome and hopefully one day I can offer the same to others!

    Officially welcome from South Australia :)

    as you probably know we do have quite a few modellers here so if you need to ask questions then chances are someone will be able to help you.
    Also you'll find that quite a lot of us have never attended a class for various reasons (bad health/lack of finances/nothing available locally) but with the help and guidance here you'll be surprised at how far this place can get you.

    What brush and paints are you currently using?

    Welcome from the U.K. Doughnuts. Sounds like you’ve set yourself up with an awesome brush right of the bat. Questions are the name of the game round here Buddy, so ask away. And also post up some pics of any models you’ve painted. We have a bunch of other modellers here too, plus we’re all a little nosey and love seeing what everybody is up to.

    Noooo those poor 0 rings ... RIP little fellas. I was fortunate that my setup came with a crappy brush first so I managed to get all my learning maintenance kinks out on that thankfully.

    I should probably disclose at this point that I also have a second hand HP-B Plus. I haven't had the guts to give it a run yet.... soon my pretty.

    That is awesome Sir. Very nice looking piece. I was a Warhammer 40k kid, that was all brush work and very basic, but I had a lot of fun.
