I've been spoiled by the Testors Mighty Mini kit, found at Walmart many years ago for $30. Still going strong for over five years I've painted 100's of N, HO, 1/25 scale buildings/locomotives/cars/rolling stock with ease and great results. My results seem to be at par or better than my other friends brands (single or double action) in the model railroading hobby, who use $100+ model master/paasche/badgers etc.

A good advantage is it's a single action brush, which are a lot easier to breakdown and clean, also switch nozzle sizes fast.

You can still find these floating on ebay for cheap, you'll also need extra bottles and different size nozzles.

Corey, airbrushes are available in single and double action, and three different paint-feed variations: siphon-feed, side-feed, and gravity-feed. Of these, double-action brushes give better control, and gravity-feed brushes are the simplest to clean and waste the least paint. Iwata airbrushes are very popular with lure painters, the Revolution and Eclipse series in particular. I have an Eclipse HP-CS (courtesy of Whittler1), and it's a very good airbrush.

I've also had good results with the Master G22 double-action airbrush. It's a starter/intermediate-level airbrush, and while it doesn't atomize the paint quite as well as my Iwata Eclipse, it does the job well and is a very good starter brush. I mainly use my G22 for spraying glitter now, but it's a very good airbrush for the price. You can find it in a kit with an air hose, regulator and compressor on Amazon for $90 including shipping. I used that kit all last year, and I still use the compressor with my Eclipse.
