Yeah, i did think it was a bold statement for them to make. I sent an email asking them about their makeup but i have yet to get a reply. I might take the chance and order one when i have a little extra money.

As an FYI, top feed is generally physically easier to handle, and uses gravity to its advantage when the paint runs low.

Here is a link to something that seems the same as the compressor that I got from eBay a couple months ago

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spraymaster-Mob ... B000VE9XLC

It came with a gravity feed, dual action airbrush, I got them both for $60. I played with them a little bit for the first time today and took a couple pics. Keep in mind that i am a complete nub with an airbrush and got lazy... so it looks a bit spotty. Overall I am very happy with it. Its small, cute, portable and looks like an elephant (who wouldnt love that). very simple to use. The brand name sticker on mine says "powercat" but it seems like this same compressor is sold by several companies.

If your funds are low and you want an airbrush/compressor kit I suggest to eBay it up!

Look up the Max psi on the compressor. I believe That you want it to be at least 40 psi. I have also been told that gravity feed airbrushes are prefered over siphon feed ones (they feed better when the paint gets low). Olive branch sells one for 30ish. I'm definitely not a pro at this tho :)
