It has always been my impression that most REALLY GOOD models were painted using an airbrush, but from looking at a lot of REALLY GOOD models on this forum and mellowmike's page, it looks like many folks are painting things up with a handbrush? Have I just always been mistaken in believing that most really good paint jobs were done with an airbrush? Are there advantages/disadvantages to either over the other? Obviously cost would be an advantage of brush over airbrush....but what about ease of getting the proper weathering effect? Is it easier to get that "dusting" effect with an airbrush over a drybrush technique...or not? I appreciate the input.
