Does anyone know if this is a good airbrush? It seems self contained and reasonably price. Correct me if I'm wrong, since I have no clue about airbrushes, just that it's made by Tamiya Thanks!

Im using that exact airbrush now and find it really nice and compact. Cleaning the airbrush itself is quite a painless process.

I typically hook up using an adaptor as oppose to a battery but its really nice to have that option to place the battery in for mobility.

I would thoroughly recommend it.

I'm using this set too... But i've replaced the airbrush with a "metalic" one instead of using the "plastic" airbrush which comes with it. I've got problems with the one they provided... the plastic containers (i'm not sure what they're called) where I feed paint in got stuck and I couldn't remove them for cleaning. So I changed..

As for the compressor, it is rather basic but the function of being able to bring it everywhere is a plus. I don't have a fume hood, so I would usually do my airbrushing out doors.

However, i'm gonna stick with the compressor for now as i'm still on a rather tight budget till I'm able to upgrade to a newer compressor. One that has a regulator that allows me to change the PSI (air pressure).

Conclusion: I personally I think it's still a good "stand in", till you decide to upgrade..
