Well, it really depends on what you are going to do with it mostly. If you are going to do mostly bodies, go with something like a Badger 150 or 360, or an Iwata HP-SB. For Illustration I use a Iwata CM. For T-shirts, there are different requirements as well. Go to www.dixieart.com and look around there. They have a lot of good information and great prices. You can also check out the forum on www.airbrush.com.

I use the Aztec brush and It's a pretty good brush. I don't have pic of some of the paint jobs that I paint but hey....I'm still getting a feel for the whole painting deal and if I were to get laughed at I may never paint again...LOL

While I personally don't like the Azteks, they are supposedly very easy to use and clean. The reason I don't like them is because I have been airbrushing for so long and using standard airbrushes that the Aztek feels strange in my hand since it isn't shaped like the brushes I'm used to. But as I said, that has nothing to do with the performance. It's just my preference.

I have just bought a new toy, the Aztek 470 airbrush. Haven't done any shells yet cause I'm still getting use to it. I'm lazy... so the easy-to-clean and throw-away cheap nozzles really appeal to me!!

Iwata HP-CS. Gravity fed. Works awesome for bodies, and sprays almost wide enough to cover areas large enought for r/c bodies.
