"How do I know how much paint I'll need?"

If you're going to do a TuTone paint job, a 1 oz. bottle of each color will usually do the job even if you've got very little experience with an air brush.

If you're going to do a single color paint job a 1oz. bottle will do the job if you've got experience with an airbrush. If you've never used an air brush before, go with a 1 oz. bottle only if you feel lucky... otherwise get a 2 oz. bottle just to be sure you've got enough from the same batch in case you need to spray on another coat.
