Tony, I'm using a Iwata HP-CS Eclipse. If your looking to get one, check these out. Easy to use, clean up and durable. I've had mine for over 5 years with no problems. I always clean it after each color I spray. I'm using lacquer paints. I clean it up with lacquer thinner.

hi sam when you started did you ever have it hard not to cut into the paint with the xacto blade and what is the trick a very sharp blade? can you elaborate on this a little thanks the 65 is bit------in
Ragu, A sharp blade cuts with little effort and a dull blade requires more pressure and will try and tear the tape as you cut. I didn't find it all that hard to make cuts without going to deep in the paint. I've had a lot of practice with cutting out designs in liquid mask on .007 and .010 lexan bodies. If your wanting some practice, get some tape and a piece of styrene. Start learning blade control on it. After you cut out your design pull up the tape and see how deep you actually cut. It does take practice to get a feel of it all. Great question.
