    Here's a quick shopping list from Airbrush megastore:

    HP.CP Iwata High Performance .3mm Airbrush $ 222.75
    Piston Grip Moisture Filter / Iwata Airbrushes $ 27.61
    Iwata Braided Airbrush Hoses - (1/8" to 1/4" ) 3mtr $ 34.87 (depending on how far away your compressor will be you may need the 6Meter one
    Total $ 285.23

    You will also need the adaptor (1/4" male to male Nitto fitting) for the hose to fit the compressor (available from anywhere that sells air compressors - automotive store, hardware store)

    If you get the adaptor from Bunnings then grab a rubber door mat as well for a few $$ to go under the aircompressor, it will help stop it 'walking' on tiled floors as well as help absorb vibration noise.

    Read the manual and make sure you drain the tank regularly.

    Sorry, @Vladimir I disagree. I started with a Sprint Jet, went to the California Air Tools, and as a fine art painter myself in a "indoor" studio it was still to loud & vibrated the whole floor. Said screw it and went all in on a Silent-Aire 50-24, and so glad I did. Doesn't even wake a cat at midnightlol:p
