Where are the other contenders? Wasn't Legends putting a Gunze
airbrush set on sale?

Another factor you should take into consideration is noise. Some
compressors are so bad you literally have to screw them on a table or
flat surface, or it will shake and rattle and even start moving around
by itself while powered on. If you paint your kits in the wee hours, it
can really piss off people who live downstairs even if you live alone.

Go around the rack so you are facing the cashier, you will see them next to
the Evangelion colors in box sets.

>and will it be usable with the aztek airbrush?

I don't see why not... just make sure you don't mix paint from different
brands, it can majorly mess up your air brush as my friend found out the
hard way. Luckily he had plenty of thinner lying around.
