Airbrush Compressor Works
If you are shopping for a new airbrush compressor as I was recently, do yourself a favor and purchase one that has an air tank as part of the air compressor assembly as seen here.
Its tempting to purchase an airbrush compressor by itself without the tank because of the cost, and many people do, but the pulsing at the airbrush can be a pain when you are doing fussy work, especially with a dual stage airbrush.
Make sure your compressor includes a pressure regulator, gauge, and water trap, all necessities for an exceptional finish.
The airbrush compressor shown here is a Paashe D3000R that runs extremely quiet when running, with the compressor having cut in to top up the tank (3/4 gal) with air.
In this photo I just finished doing some weathering (with AIM weathering powders) on this HO GE 44 ton yard switcher, and at this point I'm spraying the complete cab assembly with an acrylic flat finish, giving the locomotive a more authentic look, and sealing in the weathering powders.
