Default Looking for an airbrush

I am 16 and am looking to start painting hard body crankbaits. Any suggestions on airbrush, compressor, and regulator?

Heard that the $20 Harbor Freight airbrush works well.

what is your budget ? you are16 thats why I ask, are you going to paint small baits like bass and walleye baits ? or larger baits like musky baits?
It can cost alot if you dont get someone to help guide you.
alot of bait makers on here and great at painting to.
harbor airbrush is great for 18 bucks, it is great for fine work.

Check out the little pankake compressors at Harbor Frieght. If all you want is a way to paint baits and small jobs you can get one at a great price. I plan on buying one very soon myself.
