Thanks for starting this modeler forum Shane. I suspect we might start seeing examples of everyone's work. You a brush work guy?

I tend to shy away from vehicles.... so yeah 1/35 figures are my interest. I make little dioramas... Im not that good but I find it really relaxing just sitting *sniffing glue* ... I mean trimming the sprue, sanding a seam or trying not to shake while painting in eyebrows... LOL

Hello, if you want a simple to use airbrush go with a single action paasche H, no needles to worry about, I had mine for 20 years and recently upgraded to a harder and steenbeck infinity.

Please let me know if you need more info!

I have a Badger Anthem 155 and I haven't had any problems with it at all. I have had it for 10 years.
My modeling time is limited so there aren't many miles on it.
Keeping them properly cleaned is a must for any air brush.

I know I'm late to the party here, but as brands I'd recommend are Iwata and Harder and Steinbeck. I've got an Iwata HP-C which I think is very well made and a good all round airbrush to use.
