No, but they are the easiest way to get a halfway decent looking job.

In that case, air brush is the only way to go.

>or are gundam markers only complementary tools to airbrush?

The thin Gundam Markers are still good for detailing the panel lines, but
if you want truly professional looking paintjob, forget about using the
thicker Gundam Markers to color the body surface.
