    Has anyone here used the testors aztek 9169 mighty mini airbrush w/ compressor package that you can buy?

    I picked one up the other day for 70$, but I'm contemplating returning it (didn't open it yet). I've got a more basic airbrush set that hooks up to an air canister via a hose that's worked alright. Considering that you get the air compressor with this one though, I figured it might be a pretty good deal. The only review I've seen for it though rates it as horrible.

    Considering that I'd be picking it up so I can work on kitbashes though I thought a review from here might help me decide if I should keep it, or just return it and wait a bit longer to get a more expensive one and a better compressor.

    Any help is appreciated.

    An air compressor is better than the cans, but those low end azteks are horrid. You should probably save your money for a better hobby compressor. If noise isn't an issue, you can use a regular hardware compressor, just make sure it's got a pressure regulator. Whatever compressor you use, you're going to want a moisture trap for it.
