Airbrush set up.

Paasche is different as well from what I read, but never had one.

 

I think that most European / Asian manufacturers used std metric threads and the only ones doing it differently are the Americans TBH. There are two different thread standards for air applications (in metric) if I recall correctly, one is "big" (the one used on big compressors like for paint guns, nail guns, tires) and a small one, that airbrushes use. But it's not my area, some research should be done.

I just saw adapters for Paasche on amazon, so you are likely correct...

One thing I didn't see on your list but might be worth it to look into is masking fluid.  

 

Masking tape and plastic wrap will work good for most cases, but having a fluid that will actually sit on the miniature surface without letting paint stick to it is really useful.  Was introduced to it in the Angel Giraldez Masterclass books - Vallejo makes one that seems to work pretty well.

 

My 2 yen,

Thanks. I just bought some the other day. When I discovered the window masks on the kit I'm building were such a huge pain in the patooty. ::D:
