I've used paasche and iwata (high end brands), but use my inexpensive (not cheap quality) from harbor freight tools regularly. You can buy online with a compressor and a range of cleaning and filtering accessories - very reasonable!

The key is in getting good airbrush paint. You can't run cheap craft paint through an airbrush. Spend the extra money on good paints and you'll be doing more painting and less clog cleaning.

Looks like the deluxe airbrush is on sale. The deluxe airbrush is similar to iwata, but at 1/10 the price. Compressors are below on the same search page.

Hey everyone! I'm also looking into starting to paint epp planes for a local company, simple paint schemes, but again the same question, what is a good starter kit? I don't want to spend a ton on one, but want to get one that will last
