Wondering if anyone uses or can advise on respirator cartridges for airbrushing. I will be using a 3m 7500 series respirator, but do I need only multi gas/vapour cartridges, only particulate filters or a combination of the two? Cheers

Are you using water based acrylic or solvent based paints? If you aren't using any harmful solvents then particulate filters will do but if you intend to use any kinds of solvents, white spirit, IPA etc. then I would go with the gas/vapour cartridges. I can't be certain as I am not an expert on mask cartridges but I believe that the gas/vapour cartridges filter particulates as well so you shouldn't need both filter types.

I use A1 cartridges, No. 6051. I spray mainly lacquers (i.e. cellulose thinners) and never had a problem, don't smell a thing with those.
