I'm looking at buying a 2nd AB and was wondering what the difference is between a Side Feed and a Gravity Feed AB is.

My current airbrush is gravity fed.

Not much difference other then the location of the paint cup......I use sidefeed detail brushes simply because the paint cup is not in my line of sight when i'm painting tiny details....otherwise both brushes work basicly the same....its just a preference thing.

I will say this about a sidebowl....since the paintcup mounts on the side and swivels, you could airbrush on your ceiling like Michelangelo if you wanted too, just by pivoting the paintcup...try that with a gravity feed....lol.
