    1/5 HP, 58 PSI Compressor and Airbrush Kit

    I fount this online and was wondering if this would be a good starting kit for air brushing?

    I'm not so sure for the Air brush kit, but would the Air compressor be useful?

    i have literally just brought one very similar!

    it seems very good so far and for just a small timer like me its awsome! mines quiet and does what it says on the tin but i have put a good airbrush on the end of it not the poorer quality one as pictured. hope this helps!

    I'm currently using an airbrush set up also for my customs. This set here the compressor comes without an airtank. So the air will be constantly flowing. It good but for 58 PSI wise, The flow won't be powerful at all. So thinning the paint alot will helps solve this problem. The airbrush wise it a bottom feed system, I would recommended going for a gravity feed ones. As those will have better paint flowing features and alot easier to use.

    no air tank? no wonder i can't see it in the specs,

    but do I really need an air tank for air brushing?

    they do have one of the 100psi 3 gallon air compressor. would just buy a separate air brush kits.

    1/4 HP, 3 Gallon, 100 PSI Oil Free Compressor

    yeah its got no tank but means that it is only slightly more noise and set the pressure a bit higher and thin the paint a bit more. ive been practicing with mine a few hours yesterday and seems very good!

    the paint flowed well and a good finish on some junker bots. i was using tamiya acrylics thinned with rubbing alcohol. although the second compressor you linked would also be a good choice just need the hoses and actual airbrush.
