hello maximus, its probably better to use water based paints since your first starting out,, autoair is a little more complicated for a beginner i would think, but the best thing you can do is just experiment with your brush rite now and dont really expect any results, the thing bout smaller needles is that the paint must be thinned to the proper consistency, com art is made by iwata and should be a pretty good paint to start with, i would suggest you watch a few of airbrush tutors videos on maintaing your airbrush and learning how it works and get a general knowledge of your gun, u got learn on something , it might as well be a good brush, good luck and there is lots of help on here

Com-art is perfect to start out with, Wicked, Auto-Air are both made by Createx, Both good paints but it depends on what you plan on painting.
The Hi line is a great brush and I know people who used that for their first airbrush too. So learn to use it and it will do everything you want to do .
You can up-size the Tip to the .3 if you use the nozzle and needle form the Hi-line CH model. so you can go form a good all around airbrush to a detail brush with only have to change the nozzle and needle.
That to me means you did a smart buy. So for about 40 dollars US you have a two in one airbrush.
Not sure where your town is or what country it is in but you can order any paint system you want to use. Any of the water based paint shoot about the same .

Hello and welcome to the forum, Ranhalen and Mr.Micron are spot on with what they say, you have a great brush there and com-art is ideal to you use straight out of the bottle, you could add a drop of water if you wanted no problem. But the main thing is to learn about your new brush, clean it well,lube it and take good care of it and it will take good care of you, treat the needle with loving care:)
Watch all the tutors vids and try out the excercises which are all free.....pratice pratice pratice my friend and you will get there, have fun and just enjoy yourself, also dont be afraid to ask any question.

Look forward to seeing your dots , daggers and what ever else you post up.
Com-art is design to even paint through a .15 tip so just keep the air pressure at around 20 PSI or 1.3 BAR and it will spray like a dream. sometimes with Com-art i drop the airpressure down to 10-15 .
