QUOTE (Expat @ 27 Mar 2008, 17:26) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>... either the Badger Model 150 or the Iwata Eclipse...

...It's a piston type compressor and has an output of 15 litres per minute at a maximum of 2.6 bar via a pressure reducing valve plus a 0.25 litre reservoir tank. Any comments on this spec would be appreciated....

I was looking at a Badger a short time ago. After my research, I determined that the BADGER 155 ANTHEM was a good all rounder. There are a few on eBay. Peter paid a small fortune for his, but you can pick one up for $69. Sure shipping is extra, but it works out quite reasonable.

Your compressor sounds fine. It goes up to 37 psi. I use between 5 and 25 psi when airbrushing depending on the application.

For a while now I've been using a dual action airbrush that I bought from Great quality for the price. I have a pressure control on the compressor, but I use an Air Brush Filter Regulator at the table where I'm working to give fine control and to trap any condensation in the pipes.

Here is something that I painted a few weeks back.

I've also been weathering wagons and some railway buildings - more on that later.
