Fine Molds Model Kits


New Member
Hey all,

I am new to model kits painting, the only model kits i have ever done were bandai gundam kits and they were easy cos they were already molded in color and are snap-fit.

I recently purchased a couple of Fine Mold star wars kits, the x-wing and hte tie fighter.. and was just wondering if you guys could offer me advice and tips, to cementing it together, painting it, weathering it, tools i need.

I have a pretty good airbrush that i bought a long time ago, the body of the airbrush was constructed with resin or some other lightweight material with a vareity of colorcoded spray nozzles(i don't remember the brand though)... will that help in painting ? or do i have to use a brush?
