Hi all,
This may be a well covered topic but I need help on choosing a suitable compressor. I have recently bought a Premair G35 airbrush now need something to power it. Choices at the moment are, Revell standard class 39143, Spraycraft CP2101, Airbrush pro AS816. I know these are budget models, thoughts on these or any others would be much appreciated.
Best regards,
Ashley.

Hi Ashley,

I bought one of these a few years back and I'm really satisfied with it. http://www.airbrushesonline.com/Product-74

Hope this helps,

Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the reply and info, the model you suggested is pretty much the one I was leaning towards and they are selling it for less than I had found. I am building a Mosquito,1/48th Tamiya, first build since I was about 14, and getting the paint job right is filling me with dred the standards are very high looking on the forums. Oh how happy I was with an airfix kit and two pots of paint and brush!

Best regards,
Ashley.
