If you want something cheap a neo by iwata is pretty decent the harder and steinbeck that Shannon suggests is pretty good too. If your willing to put a little extra money into it the iwata eclipse is amazing I've had one for a year and a bit and I've never had to give it a deep clean, it works as well as the day I took it out of the box
I'll second what Kaelon has said - I have an eclipse as well and, for what (little) I have done with it it has been pretty damned reliable and easy to maintain. It doesn't seem to like really thick paints (Vallejo primer, for instance) but it'll get it on the model.
Pretty much the same as Shannon. Ordinary dust mask. I bought the largest dollar store plastic tablecloth I could get to put under & behind my spray box. Box is just ordinary large-ish box that I cut to provide max coverage for the desk or table I have available. I then just tape it back to box form when done with the cloth and any other supporting bits inside until I need it again. I'm not particularly dexterous when it comes to airbrushing so I use a set of disposable gloves as well. Great thing about airbrushing with acrylics is that the only odor I can detect is the cleaner. And that is very minor when working inside.

oh yeah... get gloves... good point Chris....
The absolute best ones I've found are GRIPPAZ Bob Dale Gloves - sell them at Canadian Tire. I generally only wear one on the hand that is holding the model ... as that is generally the only hand I end up getting covered in paint...lol
10 gloves in the pack then equals 10 painting sessions. They're pretty cheap and don't have latex in them (Nitrile) and they're a snug fit so they're not slipping all over the place!
He who dies with the most PAINTED miniatures wins!
