That's what I use. Pretty happy with it. Cau use high pressure and spray large areas quickly, or turn pressure down and paint pencil lines. As with anything, it takes practice to become a pro with it, but it's pretty easy to learn as far as airbrushing goes. Would be a good choice.
Post a pic of the compressor you are thinking of getting. When I ordered my iwata, I got a package deal with one of the small handle compressors. Although I love the airbrush, the compressor I got was garbage. I didn't even make it through one set of armor before it crapped out. I contacted the company, and they sent me out a new one. That one lasted about 3 weeks, and then did the same thing. They sent me another one!! I'm on my 3rd one now, and never did really use it, cause I figured it would crap out too...I ended up going back to my big noisy dewalt compressor. It's very loud, but always works!!!
