Default New to airbrushing

Hello to everyone here. I am starting a new hobby so I wanted some advices about airbrushing. I want to buy an airbrush and an air compressor (best choice something big for workshop also).

Please give me also some links for airbrushing forums to check there. I want to buy my equipment and practice a lot before start airbrshing my helis. I have in mind other projects too.

Thanks in advance,
Vlassis.

the one I posted the link to, it is a great brush that will take you a long ways before any need to spend a bunch of money!

Thanks. I think that iwata is the best choice I have. Also this airbrush is recomented from many modellers and RC HELI magazine in one article about how to paint a canopy. It is a good price also. Propably I'll buy one. I'll let you know what happened.
