Hey Turbo! Good to see you here. An airbrush and MonsterKolor will change your (creative) life. I know it did mine.
Oh, I didn't even check the link, I thought you were still talking about the Revolution. No idea how the Neo is. The Revolution is Iwata's 'go-to' beginner brush.
I've seen videos of Mark painting Eyezon's outside on the porch. So, that would probably be the cheapest option but it can be discouraging if you live in an area with a lot of precipitation. Obvious, of course. Other than that I would recommend painting in a well ventilated area outside of your living quarters especially if you are going to use solvent based paints like v-color and monster kolor. I also remember reading a how-to somewhere on building a cheap paint booth made out of cardboard, a commercial vacuum cleaner and some microfiber padding. I just can't find it. Here is one @ instructables but it is probably better to invest a little more...
Thanks for the great info, Matt!
What do folks recommend on a good place to paint in terms of space and ventilation? What's minimal? What's ideal?
i started with a badger 175 dual action kit... it retailed for $100 at michaels, but had a 50% off coupon.. paid $50 +tax... i like it alot... i'll upgrade at some point, but for right now it works for me... as far as the compressor... im using a 3 gallon auto compressor... 20 foot line, and then you just gotta get the fittings to work for the airbrush... its awesome cause u never run out of air... my brush line connects to a moisture trap.. the moisture trap has the standard line fitting for a compressor on the bottom. it works rather good.
