So I have a friend who collects and paints Star Trek figures, and, as such, uses an airbrush. As it is, she's offered for me to use it should I feel the need.
So here's me asking- who here as any experience with them? If so, are they any good for stuff other than undercoats? Anything I should know about them? A penny for your thoughts.

Yes... use it.. . if nothing else to give it a try... just remember that it will spoil you

They're good for just about anything your skills will allow, really. If you can manage the proper control, you can pretty much paint a whole mini with the thing - a good airbrush will paint a pencil thin line if you know what you're doing.
Generally speaking though, they're great for basecoats and painting large areas, ideal for doing soft edged camouflage, and anywhere that you want a soft, smooth fade from one colour to the next.
The main thing for you to know is that they're sensitive tools and they need to be treated with care. Cleaning and maintenance is critical, but not terribly labour intensive if you stay on top of it.
