I made my spray booth out of an old projection T.V.

Gutted it, put in a peg board floor and a light just inside the top lip.

I have a vacuum motor from a bank siphon system plumbed into the bottom that blows outside.

Works pretty good. 

I cover the peg board with paper towels at the front so just 5 or 6 rows of holes are open at the back,
and the paint fumes are sucked down and out.

" I'd like to make my trains look more realistic,
and possibly add some light weathering.

I suspect an airbrush might look better than traditional brush work.

But I'd like to get opinions from people with experience on what brand to get,
what type is best to use, and any tips that might help a beginner. "


Hi Eric  :wave:

I hope you see this  C :cool: :cool: L  airbrushing & spraying Topic !  :old dude:


There are some great & very simple/cheap ideas here, for making DIY spray-booths.  :dt:


Along with a small & easy to rotate stand, a must have for indoor spraying.  :thumb:


If anyone has comments or photos of their spray-booth bench setup, please Post them !  :bg:

I used an old microwave oven,
installed a 12 volt computer fan, vented through the oven and shed wall.

The interior light gives me light to work with,
and the turntable makes easy work of turning the items being painted.

When not in use,
the air brush and accessories are stored in the oven.

Not so messy, and an air brush holder screwed to the outside of the booth.

Has been very handy when spraying.

Air brush spray box I built several years ago.  

Has flourescent lightning, fan air vent with filter.  

Didn't look quiet as pretty and white after one use.

Hi Peter  :wave:



Pretty  LO-TECH  !  :mex:
Reminds me of the Science Lab which I used to work at.  :brill:





We only ever switched ours on, at lunchtime when NUKEin' cheap meat pies !  :w:

I recon those cheap meat pies, were more dangerous than the chemicals we used.  :shocked:



I like your overall colour scheme Peter, with the oDd primer-grey cobweb !  :P

I bet Charlies looks really different now, unless his Road Livery is white !  ;)

I am still using my extra-huge-size cardboard-box, with newspaper in it !!  :f:

Si, my spray booth is high tech.
 
The cob web acts as another filter to collect stray fumes, vapors, aerosols and paint particles,
before going through the vent to atmosphere outside the shed saving the world from pollution.

When the cob web is full of particles,
I wipe it out of the oven and let in another arachnid from my collection in the shed. 

The colour scheme depends on what I'm painting,
it gets a bit dark in there after painting steam locos.

??? :f:  :Crazy::old dude:....................Peter
