I use an Iwata hp-bcs.But my next brush will be a Iwata eclipse hp-cs,It is a gravity feed brush with a 35mm nozzle for more detailed work.

As far as paint goes it depends on what type of paint your going to use. A lot of us use water based paints such as Createx, Auto Air, Smith wildlife paints, etc. I think Hobby Lobby carries some Createx paints if you decide to go with water based. You can also order them online at places like Dixie Airbrush, TCP Global and Coast Airbrush as well as some of your arts and crafts stores. After you decide which type of paint your going to use just do an online search and you'll find lots of online retailers.

 

Good luck and welcome to TU.

i would definitly highly reccoend the eclipse hp-cs as well. Its my main brush i use. I have found its a great all purpose brush, with parts (needles/nozzles will be needed no matter what eventualy) readily available adn one you shouldnt outgrow no matter your skill level becomes.  Wit the 40% off coupon at hobby lobby it would be in your budget as well. Hobby lobby also has a good selection of createx and wicked paints available in most stores too, and online retailers like coastairbrush.com have basicly anything you can imagine too

 

good luck and welcome to the addiction - er i mean hobby
