Had to go to town on Friday, and stopped by the big box hobby and craft store to buy some copper rod for making hand rails. I noticed they had most of their airbrushes and accessories marked down for clearance. I picked up an Iwata Neo airbrush kit. It was originally priced at $239, marked down to $169, and was being cleared out for 50% of the lowest marked price. Paid $85 dollars plus tax for the kit. It came with airbrush, compressor, hose, three bottles of paint and a bottle of cleaner. Spent some time this morning playing around with it. The yellow paint was the perfect color for a model of a Porsche 914 kit I picked up for the layout. I'm doing the kit to look like my very first car, which was a yellow 1971 Porsche 914.

I hope so. Now to study up on weathering my locos/cars, and start gathering paints to do it with.

Yep. It's a Revell 1/25th scale model. It'll go into the layout well enough. My first car, back when I was a young man in the navy was a yellow Porsche 914.

Nice bargain! You tube has a load of clips covering the many aspects of air-brush weathering. Have fun :)

Great deal on the Iwata - amongst the best going - not sure about the lemon, but I would strongly recommend using acrylic paint which is more healthy for the planet but easier to clean up too.
