great airbrush.....I have one but if your going to paint with the acrylic paints, ie. Faskolor, Createx, AutoAir you should look at the revolution CR it has a larger needle which works better with the thicker paints. You can still get all the thin line detail you would ever want just passes the paint better.

Thanks it would be mostly for lexan bodies, do you think that air compressor can handle the job or should I skip the combo and get a better compressor? This is just to paint bodies and have something to screw around with.

That compressor will work but tankless compressors like that one can give a slight pulse through the line. That combo is mostly designed for the nail tech industry.

I personally just use a good old regular 5 gallon air compressor. Very consistant fills up maybe 1once every few hours depending on how much im spraying.... Also the smaller compressors cant really deliver the PSI you might want to use. I vary anything from 15psi to 60psi.. average is 40 to 55

I have a 5 gallon chraftsman air compressor would I just need a dryer and a better regulator, what would I need as far as hose adapters. that would save me a ton of money using my garage compressor.

+1 on the iwata hp-cr. I just got mine yesterday and it is so much easier to use than my other airbrush which has a .35 tip. I don't have to thin paints as much and I can still get some very fine lines. I just get a lot better consistency and more control.

I think the other brush won't leave the shelf as much now.

I just voted for the Iwata but it's the only one I've ever used. Bought it based on what I read here. I've been very happy with it so far.

I use my shop air compressor so, I have plenty of air there.

Default Paasche Talon

I love this brush. I also own an Iwata HP-C, but I use my Talon the most.

Do you guys prefer the gravity feed over the bottle feed. If so, why?

For Rc shells I prefer gravity feed because it's easier to get into tight spaces without a bottle hanging off the bottom of your brush. I've never used a bottom-feed airbrush though.

For general artwork (canvas, tshirts) a bottle fed might be better because it can hold more paint.

Can I please ask what 409 is?
