The large one with reservior will work well especially if it allows you to adjust the pressure in the output. I know the small ones for the single airbrush doesn't clean very well. Something lighter that would be effective are computer dusters/canned air. Just be careful not to go crazy and freeze the tip or your car componenets.

It is quiet. I can work in the garage without disturbing anybody.

I had problems with it because I was doing heavy duty work with it. For R/C and light jobs (air brush, putting air on your sons bike, and all that stuff) this compressor is okay.

I'm interested in air brush painting and I just saw a very cheap compressor. It's more for inflating car tires and inflatable things.
I don't mind buying it first and see if it can be used for air brush painting.

My question is : what kind of pressure would I need for air brush painting and how would I go about finding connectors to attach the nozzle to the air brush?

Thanks.

mostly airbrushes need 27 to 30 psi the most.....its better to get a compressor with an air regulator with gauge.
