[QUOTE=Could you all suggest an air brush kit for a starter like myself that I can use for quite awhile without needing to upgrade? I'm not much of an artist but I like the various effects done with the air brush.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions that you all might have. Thank you.[/QUOTE]

I would recommend the Master G33. It comes with 3 nozzles and needles .3, .5 and .8 mm. I have an Iwata that is worth twice the Master and I keep finding myslf using the G33 a lot.
I personally think it s the best and most versatile gun around for the money. It s a lot of airbrush for 79 USD.

You can get it here from www.TCPglobal.com
If you get a decicated compressor, skip the bottom of the line and get at least something like their TC20 with regulator and a tank .
You could also just add a regulator to yours.
They also have paint "kits" with all the basics to advanced colors you d need to get cranking, they ship fast and always had good service there.

You can also get a nice single action .8mm that costs close to nothing to spray your main colors and metallics with large flakes without having to change the needle in your main gun.

Hope that helps, don t the cheapest double action around and don t buy anything with a .35 mm nozzle or smaller in my opinion.

I'm about to purchase a new Iwata Evolution HP CS or a Revolution HP CR ( less expensive).

It looks like most are using the CS...any big reason why?

Also...I have never used Auto Air4011 reducer with Faskolor paint. How is everyone mixing these two. In the bottle or in the paint cup? I read you need to use the paint fairly quick once its been mixed with 4011 reducer...?

Thanks for any tips...

This is where I'm leaning right now.

Can we get some more reviews, especially from the more experienced airbrush users? I'm especially interested in how the 0.38mm tip deals with createx, and how wide it's range of application is (how fine it can spray, how wide).

Thanks.

I'm also thinking of getting the Talon, If anyone could do a review on it that would be awesome.

Iwata doesn't make a .38. Do you mean a .35?
You will have to get a needle, nozzle, and needle packing.

That's it. When you put the new needle packing in, DO NOT tighten it all the way down. Tighten it a little at a time and assemble the parts after each adjustment. Push the needle through and and feel hard hard it is to slide through. Keep tightening it until is has a slight drag. If you over tighten it, you will not be able to slide the needle through because you will have compressed the Teflon. If this does happen, you can drill it out with a small drill bit the size of the needle.

NO.

three parts are a set....needle, nozzle, nozzle cap.

I don't know about the BCS but on the CS the needle packing does not change when you swap tip/needle. The needle body where it passes thru the packing is the same for all needle sizes (or you would have to change the needle chuck too). It's end profile on the tip of the needle that's the difference.
