'At Last' A Reasonably Priced Irish Airbrush Compressor

Postby fs2005 » Thu May 24, 2012 8:36 pm

I see the last time I was in Marks Models in Newcastle , Co. Dublin (get directions ,its in an industrial estate!) theyre doing airbrush compressors at 109 euro .Any of these up to now in irish 'bricks n mortar' model shops have been rubbish or vastly overpriced or both .The one theyre doing is like the AS18 here

http://www.everythingairbrush.com/acata ... eries.html

a single cylinder one without tank.
Up to now the irish buyer has had to stump up for massive postage(30-70 euro!) from UK/Euro suppliers .The same shop seems to be getting in the very latest Airfix and Revell kits as fast as the factory can knock 'em out !If you got this compressor in Marks and a medium quality airbrush (Premi Air G35 is often recommended)online youd probably have change from 160/170 euro .
I think I spent about 125/135 euro about a year ago for an AS186 compressor paired with a cheap (and not TOO nasty!)airbrush .Anyway worth a look if youre in the market .There are always thread from people looking for irish airbrush/compressors suppliers .And with sterling so strong at moment (79p !!!) UK is less of an option than before .
Im an airbrushing beginner myself but find the easily available Revell AquaColor brilliant for airbrushing thinned with 30-60(?)% water

I know buying anything with a wire or a lens from Lidl is hit and miss but I wonder would this one work. It does say "compressed air paint", "Oil-lubricated" and "Reduced vibration and noise".

The Premi-air G35 you mentioned , it is cheap ,but far from nasty .I can personally recommend that little AB , All my builds over the past couple of years have been painted with one of those :) ...I do have four other much more expensive AB's in my workshop ,but I keep coming back to the G35 ,easy to use & clean and a full parts back up ....which I havent needed :) They come from http://www.airbrushes.com They lay paint down beautifully ,I have even freehanded a tri tone camo on a 1/72nd Tiger 1 with it ,check the paint on any of my builds ;)
Just saying ,its a little AB ,which is well worth the very cheap price tag .

Chris.
