I got mine, some of them say they need to be manufactured, I know the one's in the box did, might want to check on that

I ordered a few 2 weeks ago and have not seen them yet. I did order 2 of the Sotar brushes that needed to be manufactured. I think they have held up my entire shipment.
Here is the information on the site.
All products available while supplies last. All sales final. Please allow 10 to 15 business
It has only been 2 weeks so far, so I want them but the wait is still no problem. What a deal.

I did not get mine as well, I ordered the same day this was posted and what I ordered did not say they had to make them.

fish4life, my 175 didn't come with any accessories. Just the airbrush. It looks like the only brush with accessories is the 360 kit for $76.

I'm new to it also but I have friends that use them and have bought them. You may want to go to the Badger website. They have a short tutorial on the airbrushes and wht is what. That said, here are the things I looked for. You want a dual action (you adjust the air and paint flow through the 1 button on top) external mix (don't know why) airbrush that you can do everything from fine to wide without changing needles. To do larger areas you should have a bottom feed (uses a jar for the paint) for smaller amounts of color and fine painting you probably want a gravity feed (small cone on top for paint) because it is less weight and less bulky and you can make finer strokes.
My friends use and bought mainly the Model 360 because you can use the bottom and gravity feeds with it and they like them.
I covered the gambit ....... I bought the 155, 360 and the Sotar. This will allow me to use the 155 for a base coat then add a second color with the 360 and if I want to go REALLY fine I can use the Sotar ........ and what I don't like I can sell on EBAY for at least as much as I paid for it .........
You should buy a kit if you can that has the hose and jars (if bottom fed).
You will also need a means to power it. Either a compressor or a propellant can. You can either buy an airbrush compressor or use a regular compressor set to around 50 lbs max.
Badger may have some compressors coming up in the future. They did have some a little while ago but they went VERY quickly so you have to keep an eye out and be prepared to act quickly.
