    hello everyone. New to this site and to airbrushing. I wanted to try painting my own fishing lures to start. I just happen to find at a garage sale a small compressor and 3 airbrush guns. 2 paasche H and the other looks like a badger as far as I can tell. Lady said they were her mother’s and were fairly old. 1 paasche is complete and working the other need some parts that I will work on getting. I’m excited to start and may be asking some very rookie questions in the future so I hope you have patience with me. Thanks again for the chance to join here and learn from everyone!!!

    Welcome Jazman. Questions are the name of the game round here Buddy, so don’t worry about that. The search function is great, you’ll be amazed how many answers you can find quickly in existing threads. When that doesn’t work for you, jump into the Beginners Questions thread and ask away. You’ll be amazed how quickly the issue gets resolved.

    Welcome aboard @Jazman! Nothing wrong with old airbrushes. Parts are fairly easy to come by for Paasche H's and Badgers. Some careful cleaning, maybe some new O-rings, needles/nozzles, and so on , and you will have what is essentially a new airbrush.
    Where are you located? Lots of people here do lures and would be glad to offer advice. Have fun and enjoy your stay!

    Welcome from Australia :)
    I've put your country in your profile, its helpful when people are offering advise, they can source local suppliers for you, although in your case @Maple Art will have you covered
