Hi mates!

Quick question: what type of compressor are you using for your airbrushes? My old Revell 7600 sounds sort of funny and gets damned hot since a few days. The cooling fan on the motor shaft went loose :(
I use a Badger 150 with F and M needles.
I'm looking at the Iwata compressor range right now, but thought it best to get some professional opinions first ;)

gorbygould I have the Iwata Smart Jet Pro which I picked up second hand on Ebay - worth every penny, highly recommend it.

Michael Hickey I use a Toolex Industrial with 2 x 10 liter tanks, 2 horse power, oil free, and super quite at 55 decibels, I also have the compressor sitting on a 2 inch piece of sponge to help keep the noise down even more. I have had her for about 4 years, she's also got twin outlets so I can airbrush and use my home made pressure pot for resin casting at the same time. I've also got a dual adapter coming off my regulater so I can use my Paasche Talon and metal body Aztec airbrushes for when I'm working using 2 airbrushes at the same time.

Rene Scheiblich Whoa, thanks for the replies! :)
The silair was on my list too, but I'm not sure I want an oil compressor... Sweet silence though, has the lubricant been an issue for you? :) Price is secondary, a few more bucks don't matter when you get value for it imho.

2hp industrial-strength is slightly overkill for my needs although not louder than my current one in its better days. Like getting an 18-wheeler for grocery shopping :D :D
Maybe if I should delve into casting myself...

Saturn and Sparmax seem to be very nice deals too, those sound interesting. Less noise than mine too... Didn't mind the 50+ dB of my compressor so anything below that is an improvement, I use rubber pads for dampening as well :)
Gosh so many choices...
The 2nd hand Revell one was only to get my toes wet a year ago, to see if I like using an airbrush and can get along with it. Now it's time to decide for a real deal.

Greetings and thanks so far :)

PS Rui: The Badger 180 looks to be constructed similarly to the 7600. Mine started with a bright, intermittent clinking noise too. Now the fan is gone from the shaft. Metal-on-metal screeching with some clinking along serious heat development are the result. I hope it's not the same :(

09. November at 19:24:58
Rui S I've sent mine to a workshop. 35€ to fix it. ;)
But still, I want one with automatic start/off, pressure regulator, and maybe a 3L tank 8)
I've been looking around and I think many of the known brands use the same compressor made in China :S and add some metal sheet over it and the brand name :(
09. November at 19:40:49
Rene Scheiblich Yeah I can see a slightly bigger tank being very comfortable. My compressor starts/started up quite often even at 1.5 bar. Originally it wasn't even possible to regulate, had to fit a regulator with water trap myself :<
35€ to fix it. Not bad. :) I think mine would end up a notch higher :/ its not easy to get the shaft out, and at least one bearing is shot from boiling out its lubricant already :D

Nice to know about the sharing, hadn't come across that so far. I'll take a look into it... :)
09. November at 19:59:14
Rui S Let me know your findings
09. November at 21:41:20
Wim van der Luijt Oil has never been an issue with my silair....comes with a trap but it's always empty
09. November at 23:25:22
Alec K I have Iwata Power Jet Pro Studio Compressor now for 3+ years and love it. Very quiet, steady air flow.

Rene Scheiblich Welcome, have a beer. This week will be slow though... Taking a CAD/CAM course and the weekend is full. Weather would be perfect for some time at the bench :D
10. October at 19:12:18
karen murray really nice detail on that kit
17. October at 10:33:50
Rene Scheiblich Yep. Funny thing was the missing tow cable, I'll scratch that. Instead there was the PE fret from Takom's AMX 13 105 in the box :D
Made some progress, less than I wanted though. 2 left hands make things going slow ;) Sanded down the ridges on the wheels, rebuilt the frame for the headlights from copper wire and cleaned up the hull.

James C Nice work.

I've not had any trouble with blu-Tac leaving residue behind, but I don't leave it on the surface of the model any longer than I have to, and remove it as soon as the paint is dry enough to be handled.
04. October at 21:25:11
Rene Scheiblich Thanks :)
I'm still quite inexperienced with airbrushing and trying things out...
Learned the next thing. Don't leave Blutack over night :x
05. October at 06:10:12
Alex Try this stuff instead of blu-tac, no residue, reusable and easy to handle: https://dersockelshop.de/pan..s-80g_mxpression_mxa001.html
05. October at 06:49:22
Rene Scheiblich I actually might get some with my next order, thanks ;)
I'm quite satisfied with blutack/patafix in all other aspects though. Seems I just have to keep an eye at the clock :D
