I am a convert to gravity feed, but if I was blatting in a big area, a hull or similar, I would still use a syphon feed. For starters, its usually a bigger jar.

I generally use the pot underneath unless I only need a very small amount of paint. You have to remember, when using the cup, to keep the airbrush nearly vertical or get paint where you don't want it. been there  :embarrassed:
