    Hi all, New airbrusher here, I have a kit from my wife who is a automotive painter by trade, I decided to give it a try because I have been wanting to airbrush a couple of helmets I have. I had a huge motorbike accident in March this year and I cant go back to work yet so might as well be productive and learn something new.

    I am lucky to have a ROHS 1/6 HP compressor and a variety of brushes mostly from Badger.

    Looking forward to learning a lot and maybe even a new trade.

    Welcome home microwavable
    Sucks being laid up after a bike wreck but at least you have something to keep you busy while you mend up.

    Welcome aboard! Lots of people here to offer help with a variety of airbrush related items. What sort of paint(s) are you planning on using?

    Welcome Microwaveable! Bike accident doesn’t sound like fun, I’m sure your wife would have let you have a go without taking such drastic action. But we’re glad to have you here. Questions are usually the name of the game for beginners, but by the sounds of it your wife will probably have you covered there.

    So I'm going to take an educated guess and say "Wellington" BUT there are a few around and I have no clue as to which one... so welcome from Auckland New Zealand!

    Could be Wellington NZ . No matter what, Welcome to the forum. I'm sure we can help if you need any. Hope you get well soon, there's quite a few Bikers here including myself. Having a crash is not something we like to hear about but you made it so thats a massive bonus. And you have loads of time to paint so that's a second bonus. Enjoy your stay here
