i use the testors spray paint that comes in cans. i dunno anything about the airbrush kits, but the spray cans kick anus. they are like 2.59 USD here for a 3oz. can. that will pretty much do a whole case with 3 coats so its a good price compared to 40 for a kit thing.

That will be fine for one color finishes but if you want to get into graphics and detail work you will need a double action internal mix airbrush. As for paint, you can use anything as long as it is thinned down enough. I would go for gold straight off and get the paasche VL.

Its only $60 for the kit on eBay. Of course you will also need a compressor. I made the same mistake as you when I first started airbrushing, I went for the cheapest airbrush, outgrew it within a month and bough the VL. You might as well buy the best one now rather than later

Don't buy the testors one. I build model cars and I got the testors airbrush for my first one and it wasnt good at all.
