Quang, I am laughing terribly hard at the moment as your setup looks EXACTLY like mine.. minus the filter and a different hose!

The knobs are really weird yes, I tend to keep the AB running as I adjust the pressure at the start so I can gauge how much to turn. Haven't been able to really test it out but damn the knobs are sensitive!
Just one other note, the pressure release valve on mine is a bit touchy sometimes.

Touchy as in...? I only use that once Im done with airbrushing.

Well Im thinking about getting adaptors, so I can put the airfilter in line from the tank to the regulator. Saves me $10 from buying another one.

Oh and for you guys who prime using an AB, Which size nozzles do you use? 0.8mm? Or would a spray gun(automotive) work better. Im just wanting a wide enough coverage over the pieces.

And has anyone used Vallejo waterbased primers?

Touchy as in if you put any sort of force on the release ring it'll release.

How? I cannot imagine airbrush 'break' other than say nozzle is broken off. Everything else either will not break or you can replace. You should ask for a replacement if its due to some defect or source spares..and I certainly wouldn't even consider delta ab as the cheapest..

Get it checked with where you bought it from

http://target.dynamiccatalogue.com.au/portal/offerdetails/luminess-tan-kit/13172609654907?Ntk=Primary&Ntt=tan&source=search

Real cheap aircompressor and airbrush set from Target. Its only $129 . Looks like a dual action siphon feed AB with a compressor and hose. For its price it is quite cheap. $129 on sale tomorrow(6.10.11) or $150 afterwards.

Yes it may be for tanning, but you can use it for painting too! Though dont know about the compressor. May have to look at it in a store tmw.

hey guys, I was looking to get into air brushing but I don't want to spend too much on an compressor and air brush seeing as it's going to be my first time in a LONG time and I'm sure i've forgotten everything about it so does anyone have any recommendations for a set costing under $500?

thanks

This place sells air compressors and ABs for a great price. This is where I got my compressor from.

I recall hearing good things about citadel sprayguns. If I remember right it was on one of makanoman's videoes. I am currently in China and cant access youtube to check. would this be what I'm looking for? I recall being told it is pretty sturdy, anyone with some experience using it?

Also the description mentions propellant, I assume its compatible with compressors
