Pro Gravity Airbrushing System High Performance Multi-Purpose Gravity Feed Dual-Action Airbrush with Hose and a Powerful 1/6hp Single Piston Quiet Air Compressor

A great first time set up, very happy with Pro Gravity Airbrushing System High Performance Multi-Purpose Gravity Feed Dual-Action Airbrush with Hose and a Powerful 1/6hp Single Piston Quiet Air Compressor. I will probably upgrade in the next year or so to a better system, but this is a great set up to see if this is something you want to get into. I use mine for painting miniatures, I use Vallejo Air Model color and I thin out the game color and it runs just fine. Before you spray you want to dismantle the brush and reassemble it about 10 times so when you clean it after each use you have the assembly down pat. ~E. Bybee “Big Boston”~

For the price you cant beat this kit.The airbrush works great with its double action control of paint flow.Cleanup was a breeze rinse out with water then i ran airbrush cleaner through it,very easy.the compressor has an easy to use air pressure adjustment valve and you cant hardly hear it running.If your looking to buy your first gravity feed airbrush i would highly recommend this kit.out of the box was spaying in about 30 mins.A great deal!. ~Michael J. Kennedy~

Let me start this off by saying that the price for this compressor is just right! I mean, getting the whole kit (Airbrush, Compressor, hose) for a rough 90 dollars including shipping is a great deal. I use this for plastic model painting (Airplanes, Tanks, Gundams, etc).

Features: Very simple features…. you basically connect your airbrush to the compressor, turn it on and set the pressure you want to work with and its set. The neat part is that it stores the pressure when you are not actually spraying paint. So, when you restart your painting you have the same pressure… does not have to build up again. Ohh yeah and when your reach the desired PSI it automatically turns off then restarts as needed.

Quality: Quite good for the price! I mean it is very sturdy and seems like it was made with good metal. The airbrush itself is very neat… dual action and it is of very good quality. I also find it to be very precise and if you thin the paint enough it never clogs.

Paints: So far I’ve used Acrylics on a 50/50 proportion and Enamels on a 40/60 proportion (40 paint, 60 thinner). Both combos work just great! Ohh I’ve also used lacquers specifically Tamiya and Gunze brand at a 50/50 proportion and it works just fine.

Overall: If you are a beginner or need a decent compressor kit for a reasonable price…. just buy this already! I’m very happy with it.

Hope this review helps! Have fun!~Roberto Aviles (Tegucigalpa, Honduras)~

I love this kit. I bought it from a different site, but from the same seller, and it’s the same item. I love it. I use the airbrush to put details on handmade costumes, and it’s just phenomenal. The airbrush itself comes with a very nifty set of instructions, and it’s easy to take apart and put back together. It does need to be cleaned out really thoroughly or it won’t work, but I think that goes for most airbrushes anyway. As a beginner I was able to start spraying and get good results within minutes, cleaning and assembly were both easy. It’ so easy to set up that sometimes when I need a quick touchup I just water down some acrylics, pour them in the cup, and spray away, all in the space of five minutes!~wtflolanon~
