About this deal
The quality of your work will be greatly improved if you have the right equipment: brushes of different sizes, airbrushes, adhesive stencils, sandpaper of varying thicknesses, etc. For better paint brushing results use Tamiya Paint Retarder (item 87114) for a smoother brushstroke free finish. The best solution is to apply a primer as this will provide better adhesion to the paint layers you will apply later.

When airbrushing be certain to use any of the following Tamiya thinners: Items-81020, 81030, 81040, 81520, 87077. Tamiya X-20A is the easiest to work with as clean-up is simple and less messy for modellers who are new to airbrushing.
