Default iwata hp cr revolution first time air brushing

i have never airbrushed before and i recently bought an iwata hp cr revolution air regulator and cleaning pot and went to work. i spent 135.00 and was set up with every thing i needed i already had an air compressor. i was very impressed on how easy the iwata was to use. i did not like the pencil style feel in my hand though i think if i was to do it over i would have went with a grex gun style. any ways i made a short video series on my mistakes and what went right if any beginers want to take a look its on you tube type in ( airbrushing rc for beginer's) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_W_3MqJcHg. kind of my first videos so cut me some slack. also there is more than one video in the series. so check them out.

I am a newbie and I have a 60 gallon compressor that I use for my air tools. I would like use this as my air source. I will be running a separate air drop to my air brush area in the garage. What I need is for someone to point me in the right direction in regards to the type of regulator and water trap the would work well for my application. Thanks in advance.

Someone else gave this answer recently....

For water traps I use Devillbis Whirlwinds http://www.tcpglobal.com/autobodydep...DEVHAF-507.jpg Home Depot and Lowes have similar products. I just put it on the end of my airbrush hose and a quick release on the other end that plugs directly into my compressor. Never had an issue and change them about every 6 months to a year.

You could also get one of the smaller ones that connect directly to the airbrush like this http://www.coastairbrush.com/proddet...FA-450&cat=301 They work great too. Use both if you are the nervous type

Mine looks more like this one.
Got Paint? Got MicroHoles? Got custom masks?

I'm looking at purchasing an airbrush setup for doing some bodies and will probably find some other hobby-ish type uses too. Right now I will be needing to paint 3 Slash MDM bodies very soon and some pan car bodies in the fall. Nothing too fancy now, but plan on more detail as I get used to airbrushing. I was looking at the G23 kits. --> http://www.tcpglobal.com/airbrushdepot/abdkitG23.aspx

Would there be a better choice for approximately the same $$$. I am planning on using Parma Faskolor paint and maybe some Spastix paint. Should I get a compressor with a tank? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Default Snap on air brush

Does anyone have experience with this brush? Snap on bf105. I currently own and use one. But I feel like I'm not getting the detail out of it I should for a $195 brush?

Started using airbrush for practically everything at home... well, not really. But it's great for any painting job.

Hi, I'm new in lexan body painting, and I have an double action airbrush with 0.30mm nozzle, but when I'm doing a simple design or covering all the surface with faskoat or similar I think the "Master Single Action .8mm" that you recommend in the first page can be a good ally. So I'm looking for one, but I have found some spray guns like this:

The description says:

Air Pressure: 43PSI
Air Inlet : 1/4"
Air Consumption: 4CFM
Cup Capacity: 150ML
Feed Type: Gravity
Fluid Nozzle: 0.5MM-1.0MM

What do you think about? Better or worse than single action 0.8mm? and why?

Thanks for your replys

Best regards.

What paint could be used for airbrushing lexan bodyshells?
Will Tamiya's bottled acrylic work?
