Most modellers will sooner or later buy an airbrush. Such a device is ideal not only for large surfaces, but also for more detailed work. Furthermore, the airbrush is extremely suitable for weathering models, because it is easy to apply thin layers of paint. Are you looking for an airbrush for beginners? Feel free to ask us for advice. We have everything in-house, for both the novice and advanced airbrush user.
Superb results with the airbrush
How does it actually work? An airbrush is an air-powered spray gun with which (diluted) paint is applied. These devices are popular within modeling, scenery building and wargaming hobbies. Unlike when using a brush or brush, you no longer suffer from annoying streaks. The thin layers of paint also ensure that details remain more visible.
We carry a wide range with everything for the airbrush. Top brands such as Iwata, Harder & Steenbeck, AK Interactive and Werther are not missing. When you get started with the airbrush, you naturally need several components. We describe these below.
The airbrushes , also called paint sprayers or paint guns, form the basis. With a single action gun you can only control the paint supply. If you choose a dual action paint sprayer, you can also control the air supply. The single action variant is often seen as the ideal airbrush for beginners, while the experienced user goes for dual action.
To be able to work with an airbrush, you need an airbrush compressor anyway. This device provides the supply of air. Usually a pressure of 1.5 bar is sufficient. The better the quality of your compressor, the better your paint results. Note that some compressors produce more noise than other models.
The range includes paint in countless colors and types. Not only is there water-based airbrush paint , there are also plenty of paint types that are thinner-based. What you use often depends on your personal preference. We have brands such as Tamiya and Vallejo available.
Especially beginners often choose airbrush sets . Logical, because such a set contains everything you need: a paint sprayer, compressor, air hose, cleaner and paint. You can start right away. In addition, choosing a set is often a bit cheaper, compared to buying everything separately.

It may not be the favorite part of the hobby, but an airbrush needs ongoing maintenance. After all, you are not waiting for guns that get stuck due to dried paint, just to name a few.
