Now that the research is done, and the model is prepared, it’s time to break out the paints and start weathering model trains! This video covers an effective method of getting a realistic faded effect on your model without using an airbrush! Fourth in an ongoing series covering the basics of how to weather model trains, this will also eventually be one of several videos on model train fading.

This is an updated version of the combo set that I started with. The advantage of this newer version is that if you wanted to swap out needle sizes, it can be done with upgrade kits, and it comes with different sizes of paint cups. It comes with a 0.3mm needle as standard. This also comes with the same compressor that you saw in the video. I’ve been very happy with my setup. It has done everything I’ve asked it to. Fittings on this airbrush and hose are ⅛” which are compatible with Iwata hoses.
