    Badger is a recommended company for airbrushes as others have reccomended it to me.
    I have two badger airbrushes, one for general use and spraying solid colors and another for more detailed work.

    If you want to do detailed work, you also need a compressor with a nice, constant flow of air.

    Can you describe what kind of work you will be doing?

    Qpack matx PC case (Silver)
    Antec SmartPower 2.0 500W
    Biostar TFORCE6100-939
    AMD Athlon 64 +3700 (San Diego)
    GeForce 7800 GT 256MB
    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi
    Crucial (2x)512MB Memory
    Liteon 16X Dual Layer DVD±RW Drive
    Seagate Barracuda 80g Sata
    60g Ide (found somewhere)

    Paasche is also a good Airbrush Co.
    The compressor can be either a little one made for Airbrushes or a small Garage model, If you get one with a tank the compressor motor only runs till the tank is full (the whole gallon or 3 is up to your preset pressure, normaly less then 60psi), on the smaller ones with out a tank the motor runs the whole time as there is no place to store air. The Garage type compressor will allow you to use bigger air painters (like the sparayers used for painting car bodies), where the little one is limited to just the airbrush. Either way you go make sure you pick up a a water and dirt trap (it's a glass/plastic bowl) that keeps water out of your paint and brush.

    Hope this Helps!!!
