I would actually go for a gravity fed model like the hp-cs. That way you'll be able to use less paint. If you are painting several at one time that no big deal just squirt more paint in it. That way when you're done painting you won't have left over paint in the bottom of you jar that is wasted. Just a thought.

There's a bear air model that I'm pretty sure is a hp-bcs painted black and with bear air's name on it. Looks identical. It's cheap, too, think it was only like $60
