Review : Great for Gundam Models
This compressor is excellent for building plastic models. It’s not too heavy, runs quietly, shuts off when not in use, and it has a very long hose for your airbrush so you can be far away. I use this primarily inside of an apartment and it’s silent enough that it doesn’t bother anyone else. One thing you should consider is that to adjust air pressure on this model, you have to open a valve on the moisture trap which, at very low PSI, creates a constant hissing sound which prevents the compressor from shutting off when not in use (as intended). It sprays just fine but it is markedly louder at lower pressure.
I use this in conjunction with an Iwata-Medea Eclipse HP CS Dual Action Airbrush Gun / Gravity Feed to build Gundam models and it’s been great.
