Get a compressor of some sort so you don't have to buy the propellant cans. Once you get the hang of using that airbrush you will need to graduate to a better one. Glad you got it working.

yea i'm more fan of simple camos (hard to find those on Me's and Fw's ) so for now this airbrush is enough...
but i need to get job first and then will be compressor time...
anyone knows some cheep version of compressors? like those electric pumps for inflating beds and so on? could they be customized?

It may be possible, although some nice ones can be found for a good price, a moisture trap is important as well -

For water (h2o)?

G-Man,

Is a "moisture trap" necessary for airbrushing water (h2o)based paints such as acrylics.
I was always under the impression just for petrol paints such as lacquers and enamels.
Just wondering.

Good question - i'd reckon - the moisture would shoot through the air component having blobs of water wrecking the fine air/paint mist
