The airbrush is a metal dual-action, not something cheap. It's a copy of a badger design and works quite well. You won't be doing super fine detail work but overall it's a great, inexpensive way to get into airbrushing.

I had some moisture problems at first, but got a $10 inline filter off ebay that solved that completely.

One of my jobs is airbrushing face and body art as well as temporary tattoo's with a 7 color changer setup.
For most of my work I use an Iwata HP-CS or a Iwata HP-BSC for my color changer.
I purchase my airbrushes and hardware from Dixie Art.
Recently Iwata put out another compressor that I use and LOVE!!!
It's in their Studio series call the "Power Jet Pro"
I can carry this compressor with one hand if I have to go to the client or onto a job site/party or whatever and have never had a complaint about noise, most people don't even realize it's running when it fills it's tank.
Is it a Silentaire? No, but I didn't pay twice the price so I don't care!
You definitly want a compressor with a tank as it keeps your air flowing smooth and no pulsing as you get with tankless compressors, it's quiet enough that I can come home from a 2am job and put it on my kitchen counter and clean up my brushes and gear without worrying about waking up the girlfriend.
All and all I've been down this road a few time and hit a lot of bumps and when/if it can go wrong, it will when you least expect it and then I'm glad for Dixie Art as they usually have any parts I need and get them to me fast!
