Airbrush in model making
An airbrush gun saves an enormous amount of time when painting miniatures in plastic model making. At the same time, it is so easy to use that professional results can be achieved with just a little practice. Smooth transitions, camouflage patterns and accentuations are quickly completed; extensive surfaces are ready for weathering after just a few minutes. Larger quantities of figures, vehicles and buildings can be completed in a short time and motivate new projects in Revell model building.
How does the airbrush process work?
An airbrush gun uses compressed air to spray fine layers of paint onto the surface to be painted. They are used for a wide variety of purposes and are available in different sizes. In plastic modeling, an airbrush gun is usually a handy variant that is connected to a compressor via a hose. This supplies the spray gun with compressed air. On the filler-like construction of the spray gun, the Spray Gun Master Class Professional has a screw-off pot that holds the paint to be sprayed. By operating a thumb-sized mechanical lever, the paint is fed out of the pot to the compressed air and sprayed through the spray gun onto the appropriate surface. In the Spray Gun Master Class (Vario), the paint pot is located below the spray gun. When working with an airbrush gun, the hobbyist benefits from the fine and even application of paint, which makes smooth transitions possible in just a few steps. Less expensive alternatives do not require a compressor or use compressed air cylinders. These are particularly suitable when there is a need for a quick primer, but the fine work is still to be done with a brush. The Standard Class spray gunis suitable for ambitious beginners.
Airbrush complete sets for beginners
If there is no experience with an airbrush yet, the starter sets from the Revell model store are a suitable start. Here the hobbyist receives all the necessary utensils to start spraying directly. The Basic set with compressor lives up to its name. It has paints, a high-quality spray gun and a small compressor. With a little practice, the capacities can still be significantly increased by a larger compressor.
Airbrush compressor with large tanks
A high-quality compressor makes painting with an airbrush much easier. The stronger power prevents drying paint residues. Furthermore, longer interruptions are avoided. The Standard Class compressor has a large tank and can supply enough compressed air for the entire painting process. There is no need to take tank-filling breaks. Meanwhile, the output remains consistent, enabling precise results in which nothing is left to chance.
Airbrush cleaning: done in no time thanks to practical accessories
The airbrush gun must be cleaned after each use. To make this uncomplicated and effortless, the necessary accessories can be ordered at the same time in the Revell model store: The Airbrush Email Clean cleaner removes even stubborn paint residues. And with the practical cleaning set, the follow-up work is done in no time at all. This leaves more time to devote to the next project.
