Hey Charlie,

Do you still recommend the Silentaire Scorpion 1 compressor? I am looking for a quiet air compressor to get started... I have a Badger, Parma F1 (both Gravity and Siphon fed) and Grex T3 airbrushes.

I just need a good quiet reasonably priced air compressor.

SAT, if you can tell me your budget, i can recommend what kind of compressor you can consider.

FYI, when your budget is about $150, the SENCO compressor works great!

I could probably go anywhere from $150 - $250...

Looking for best quality and low sound level for that price range.

Thx CharlieB.

If I were to get that compressor, what other items would you recommend me purchasing?

I know a moisture trap, any specific one?

I noticed you used some acrylics and finished with Spazstix. Can you back acrylics with laquer's to help protect the acrylics underneath?

The ONLY reason i used spazstix last was because it was CHROME. Chrome is so thin that it gets contaminated with any other color that backs it so usually to leave it "TRUE", i use it as the last coat.

What do you charge for a pain job like that? I have an Rc8b, 2 Sc10 4x4s and a B4?

I just wanted to confirm that the Airmaster Plus is a good compressor to get and will handle all the needs of RC body air brushing? Thanks for all your help. You are a inpsiration for sure!

Just have to say that these videos are a huge help as I begin to airbrush.

It's been quite some time since i made that video and i really haven't moved forward with making more. I'ts been hit or miss with finding teh time and people to do more vids but hopefully this year that will all change. I do have a couple of them on the ofnalive.com site..nothing fancy, just quick 30 minute paintobs.

Are you talking about the paintjob on the video?

I have not used that compressor before, but if it says you can use 55psi then that is more than sufficient. My only concern is how long you can use the compressor with out it heating up and getting condensation. ALso, if it would require a fan or another cooling system to stop it from heating up.

What would you reccomend in the under $200 range that is somewhat quiet? I do have a good duel tank Senco compressor but it is real loud.
