Default Vehicle painting : Brush v Airbrush

Was curious too see when you guys paint vehicles do you use a large flat brush or do you use an airbrush ? I tend too use a flat brush on vehicles like the rhino because there is not many large flat surfaces on the rhino apart from the roof, other larger scale vehicles like the land raider I feel an airbrush is the only way too achieve a crisp perfect flat finish on such large flat areas. What do you guys use ? JD

Just a brush; i've got an airbrush but haven't quite got the knack of it yet; going to practise by repainting my IG tanks at some point.

I mainly use an Airbrush but I also hit it with the normal brush as well, but only for details.
