I have just bought a "cheapy" Airbrush, off a E-bay clone website called "wish", for $20AUS, (12GBP). They also had various Airbrush/Compressor combo's as well. If buying a Airbrush, the double/duel action are better than the single. I already have a Compressor, (with Tank), and have had it for a couple of decades now, (bit noisy, and it has a habit of moving round the room). I love Airbrushing, but only use it on the larger models, due to setting/cleaning up time.

Hi all

I am looking to purchase my first airbrush and compressor. Is there anything in particular i should be looking out for or to avoid?

I have seen a couple of compressor and airbrush packs on amazon for around 70 pound but have no idea if they are any good

Hi Trev.
this thread on airbrush hardware might help you out.
It might take a bit of reading though to decide which is best and everyone has their own opinions on hardware etc.

If it is the AS186 with a couple of chinese clones then it is a pretty good choice - I and many others on have that compressor and as the airbrushes are effectively 'free' then go for it.
There used to be a thread that included reviews of those items but somehow it has become subsumed into other threads.

Have a look here
