    Looks like it could work :) 
    I would wait for other people's opinions though.

    yea, I found a Master Pro airbrush with mini compressor for a little over $60, and before buying it I researched it a little, and I read that they are comparable to Iwata's, so I thought it would be a good buy for what I do.

    Well....an IWATA is going to run you about double the price...but there is a reason...I have used Iwata stuff for over 5 years. That is because the first cheap compressor I bought lasted about 3 months....I have had my current compressor for about 4 years....still runs great!!!

    I would suggest this if you are going to spend the money any ways....a little more could only save you in the long run..

    Thanks guys, unfortunately right now what I get and pay for is what I can afford at this point. Once I get this, even if it goes for only 3 or 4 months, that should be enough time for me to buy a decent AB then a good compressor. Also, encline, I'm sending you a PM about you breast cancer auction dude. I'm hoping I can maybe help some :)

    Yep, and sometimes you simply have to make what you have work. Such is the nature of creating artwork :)

    indeed it is my friend, indeed it is. However, I'm kinda tired of making what I have work, so I'm trying to upgrade a bit :D .. Just a little is all, lol

    I don't blame you there. I suffered through three rotatory tools before I ended up with the cordless Dremel I have now. I think this process really makes one appreciate something really nice when they're finally able to get it. :) 

    On the other hand, I do find it useful to invest from the beginning if it's something you KNOW you're going to get the mileage from.

    By it, but the AB that I want to get at hobby lobby is still more than what I am getting from ebay even with one of their 40% off coupons.. It sucks, but I am starting to work a little again, SO, maybe I can just say screw the ebay thing and snag this guy... after I pay some bills though :redface2:
