My name is Adam Done from Michigan. I am an acrylic painter, instgram @o.k.adam I am going to add the airbrush to my arsenal. I don't know when I will make the purchases but I am going to obtain a GSI Creos' PS-770 or PS-771, i like the chrome finish. I just don't know if I need a tank with the compressor, I know the Iwata CM-C+ says it requires a tank but Iwata does not have a compressor with a tank. So my question is, does the PS-770 benefit from a tank, it says linear is fine. And what is the PSI range that the PS-770 operates under for best performance. I will be using Goldens' High Flow line of paint and medium. I am using Golden products now and this is my preference. Anything else I should look into as for a moisture filter since the PS-770 does not come with one like CM-C+ does. What are the preferred hoses, connections and such that people like. Obviously I know that I am diving into the deep-end with this model or a similar one. But I am just looking to include that extra detail and effects in my acrylic brush work. This is hobby but its also fine art that I would like to make money from, won't quit my day job anytime soon. So yes It's my first airbrush, so Iwata is not the best financial investment right now, although I wonder about getting replacement parts for the GSI Creos', any other thoughts or suggestions for me?
