    Hello, I'm new here and only slightly experienced with using airbrushes. My dad gave me the two airbrushes I currently own, which are a Vega 2000 & an Omni 3000 both made by Thayer & Chandler. They are both bottom feed brushes and I use a crummy HFT airbrush compressor. I use the airbrushes mostly to paint 1:24 scale slot car bodies and random works of art. though I haven't really explored doing much of it. I live In Kansas City, Kansas which is Kansas City Missouri's evil sister. We have some art supply stores that carry the common popular brands, however, I'm unaware of any specialty stores catering strictly to airbrushing. I look forward to seeing the art of Airbrush artists and a learning more about the topic & techniques others use for their applications as well as meeting new ppl who are experienced airbrush experts & artists. I'm sure you'll see me around as I've already posted a thread regarding nozzles and needles.

    Welcome from the UK. It would be cool to see some of the slot car bodies if you ever feel like posting some.

    Welcome to the forum.i would also like to see some of the car bodies. Coast Airbrush would probably be your best bet for a specialist shop as it's already been mentioned. I hear they are very good and knowledgeable and don't mind you calling to ask questions about their products.
