I paid $60 for mine from Battle Hobbies two years ago. This was the double
action internal mix model and included an air hose and one head. All I
have purchased since then are extra cups and a fine nozzle, so that would
be another $15-20. Try mail order sources, much cheaper than hobby/art
stores. I think Micro Mart and Atlanta Airbrush also have these.

For an 'airbrush station' I simply use an old tshirt. To clean the
airbrush I fill the cup with lacquer thinner and spray it into the tshirt
which catches most of the mist. This is a lot cheaper than the station!
