Seems to me your paying an awful lot for an air compressor in that kit. Don't get me wrong. It's a good compressor, but at that price your paying over $200 just for the compressor. The Iwata Revolution BR can be found for less than $80. If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby you can get it even cheaper with one of their 20% off coupons. I did just the opposite of what this kit does. I bought an Iwata Hi-Line HP-CH for a little over $200 and then bought an air tool style compressor for about $120. The capabilities of the Hi-Line HP-CH are way above my skill level, but it is a sweet brush that seemed to make my learning curve much easier. The expensive brush sure didn't make me a great artist, but it did make a lot of things easier for me. If I were going to spend the kind of money your talking about I'd spend it on the brush. But that's just me.

Ben, I have a Craftsman 20 gal compressor. Is it too big for airbrushing?

I know this was directed towards Ben , but the answer is no. You can never have an air compressor two big for airbrushing, the bigger the tank size the longer you will be able to spray with out the pump running. You will need a good water trap, and regulator to bring it down to the appropriate psi but thats about it! Hope that helped

Yes sir, it did...thank you. Good to know that I don't have to invest in another one.
