Hobby Artist Profile: Keith Pruitt



Keith Pruitt
Canton, Georgia


I first became aware of the use of airbrushes in scale modeling when I purchased an issue of FineScale Modeler in 1987.  But, at the time, paintbrushes and spray cans were more affordable and convenient for me, as I only had time to dabble in the hobby while trying to get my business established and start a family.  Finally, I bought my first airbrush in 2005, and I was terrified to use it at first.  After a couple of months of practice, I started to see vast improvement in both capability and quality.  I purchased my first Iwata, an HP-CS, in 2009.  Now, I own two HP-CS, one TR2, and an HP-B Plus.

I have been involved with IPMS since 2005, and have won awards at local and Regional Contests, but I’ve never entered a National Contest. I have won medals at the Atlanta Military Figure Society Show in Basic and Open Categories. In 2008, I started working as a columnist for Hobby Merchandiser, an industry trade magazine. I have written two monthly columns for the last three years. I also write feature articles, indepth product reviews, and provide cover photography occasionally, primarily on plastic scale models.






I love the HP-CS, simply because it is a workhorse with excellent dependability and versatility. For smaller projects or finer details, I have found the HP-B Plus is incredibly well engineered and capable of outstanding work.
