i think iwata can be pretty costly for your first airbrush!
i dont think you could go wrong with a paasche kit cheap enough at like 40 bucks,its easy to clean and easy to use,but you cant do fine detail work....but everyone has there own preferances personallyi use a peak c-5....go to
they have some really good deals....
Mel is right. I have a PAASCHE VL and it gets very uncomfortable after a while. They're not bad airbrushes, and they do have their uses, but they clog way to easily and you have to clean them constantly.
I'm lookin' to get an Iwata for my birthday. I'll keep my PAASCHE around though.
