cool, it's something I'd like to get into, maybe I'll have a bit more space for that in a little while.

To anyone interested, the Aldi at The Pines in Doncaster has about 8 of the Airbrush Compressors with the tank and siphon airbrush in their clearance area.

I didn't see the price but it should be less than the $99 I paid. They also have black, white, red, yellow, blue, green, silver and gold airbrush paint for $1 a bottle.

If anyone wants me to grab one for them and hold on to it until they can pick it up I am happy to. They had about 6 boxes of the paints with four of each colour in a box except the metallic colours where there are two of each.

That's a great price for a reasonable quality set up.

Are there any paints that I should look at in particular to recolour WFCS Soundwave's visor from toy accurate yellow to cartoon accurate red?

I'd like a bit of transparency if possible to preserve the light piping.

You can get transparent paints in acrylics (like Tamiya) that you can hand- or air-brush. My paint of choice is SMS lacquers (that have a transparent red) via the airbrush but I wouldn’t recommend that if you have only limited experience.

Keep in mind that it needs to be done in several very thin layers over time, rather than one sitting, especially if you don’t want the red to come out too dark. The Tamiya paint will need a little watering down before use. And if you go with a transparent red paint (to maintain the light piping) the overall colour may have an orange tinge because of the base yellow.

If you can dismantle the head a quick and dirty way of doing this is with a red sharpie. Only if you can pull the head apart though!

Although... If you pull apart a sharpie and squeeze out some pigment and use a fine tip brush to apply the ink. I'd test that out on a plastic spoon or junker figure first.

I really like the new Tamiya lacquers. They lay down fairly smooth with a paintbrush but out of the airbrush they are sublime.

Ordered a cheap beginners airbrush and compressor yesterday, spent this afternoon making a cleaning pot out of a Sodastream bottle and all my lizard hind brain can think is, "cool, I made a b*ng."
