Default air brush help

Im looking to try some air brushingon rc bodys

What i need to know is,
a good brand???
a good compressor???
siphon, gravity, int.mix, ext. mix???

My LHS has an Badger 155-7 Anthem that they are will to make me a good deal on.. is this a decent one to start with.
it's siphon feed, int. mix, double action pencel line to 3in

if i really get into it i know i will need to get a better fine line gravity feed one for doing more detail work.


So what do you guys use and why???????
