    I am interested in getting started airbrushing figures, but I have no idea where to start equipment wise. I don't have a huge budget to work with so I am looking for best bang for my buck. What can you guys recommend. Thanks in advance.

    there are "starter kits" on ebay for under $50.00 you should start with one of those.
    Research about air brushes, or try out a gimpy one - see what you want then upgrade when it becomes necessary.

    If you have an air compressor already, you can try the cheapo one from Harbor Freight for 6 or 7 bucks.

    Don't buy the air can things, waste of money.

    If you need a compressor, that is something you will want to research on your own. Big compressors work fine, but are noisy. If you don't want to keep your spouse/baby up at night, you may want to use a smaller compressor that is just used for airbrushing. Only problem with that is the only use you get out of those compressor is airbrushing. Not necessarily a bad thing, but something to consider.
