I am looking at buying a new air brush and was wondering what is the best brush for painting fine lines. I was looking at the Airbrush City™Model # GD100 Deluxe 2CC Gravity Feed Airbrush.

Probably nobody has this particular airbrush. Without getting into other considerations, it's generally true that the smaller the tip is, the finer lines you can paint. Getting a fine tip airbrush doesn't mean you can do fine lines however. All of us imagine it, few of us can do it. It still takes skill and experience to get 2 sides of a bait the same. As a comparative jump off point, an Iwata HP series brush has a .02 mm fine tip. You also should consider that most of your painting will NOT be fine lines, but shading and color coating larger areas. A fine tip isn't always ideal for that.
