    thats the compressor i use. its great for airbrushing. its just loud, little electric motor. isnt good for much but airbrushing because its so weak but it can fill a ball or bike tire like a pro. now as far as a brush goes my is crap so i wont tell you lol

    I am using a Badger Bottle Feed Airbrush. It costed $50 and I also have the Badger Compressor. I find the compressor a rip off ($170) I would suggest just getting a compressor from Home Depot. It's a great airbrush for a beginner!

    i started out with the harbor freight $15 airbrush, which was good becouse it did not take long for me to ruin the needle and tip by dropping it, then moved up to a $25 master air used gravity feed from ebay. and its been working great
    its a good idea to start off with a cheapy to see if it something you want to get into

    The small "pancake" compressors are a good choice (usually 1 or 2 gallon) and can be found at many DIY stores and sometime at Walmart (and the like). These compressors are usually bought to run none air demanding tools like air nailers and work great for light duty air tools and can be used to air up tires and blow your RC off after runnin among other things. They are usually sold for a good price.
