    For the love of god Dave dont buy a Sealey upright http://www.sealey.co.uk/PLPageBuilde...iredresults=16 its a long story but this is a good compressor and i am happy with it except for the damn noise when its running its not for a confined space as my garage sounds like the space shuttle is getting ready for launching.

    I already have something similar with a small tank. I used it on site with the nail guns. It's in my workshop now. I don't mind the noise like most compressors they make noise unless you get a Hydovane which are very quiet. There a couple of grand though.

    Lads,

    I have the same compressor in the link Richie posted, and I also have the gravity-fed airbrush although I bought them seperately. I find both of them to be fine and I would highly recommend them.
    Like Anto said, it's about technique and an expensive airbrush won't help with that. There's nothing wrong with going the inexpensive route especially when starting out, then by all means upgrade if you feel the need.

The last tool I bought was a router made by Festool cost me over 600 where most professional routers cost around 300. I know it will last and has the power to do what I need it to do.
    I also believe if a tool is only used a few times a year the cheaper tool is a better way to go.

    I have an oilless compressor with a decent tank I'll use and will probably go for the cheaper air brush as I'll only use it for weathering and painting locos.

    I'll shut up now!

    Thanks everyone

    Cheers

    Dave
    Dave whatever you choose will your decision and your's alone. I wish you the best of luck with whatever airbrush you choose. If you are ever down my neck of the woods I would be delighted to have you in my home for a visit and you could have a play around with my set up.

    Rich,

    Rich,
    Please tell me that when you ask Dave to play with your set up that you are talking about an airbrush and compressor.
