    Default Airbrush compressor

    I am looking for a new compressor for my Aztec airbrush.

    Must be in both 110v and 220v and with adjustable pressure. Of course low noise. I think free oil is better.
    Concerning the price 70/100$.

    Can you advice me a good one? The aim is to have one for weathering my models.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    This is the one I got and what many people seem to get for a low priced one. It works great. Don't know if you can find it over there.

    I have one of these that I like. Pretty quiet. Adjustable. But it's only 110V.

    I would not get that one Elwood , it won't be quiet because it has no air tank , therefore will have to run every time you need air. Get one with an air tank like this one . I hope you can find one with 110 and 220v.

    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    It's from a Dutch store , but is not 110-220 , just 220. Similar ones are easy to find , just that they are only 220v https://www.eleshop.nl/stille-lucht-...koppeling.html

    For the price the Fengda 186 and 189 are good , found them on Amazon.fr , this is a Dutch company with them. https://www.airgoo-europe.com/airbrush-compressors

    Ok thanks.
    I found this one : https://www.ebay.com/itm/OPHIR-Dual-...4HZc:rk:7:pf:0

    Seems good. With an EU plug (220v) that means I can use it here with a converter transformer 110-220v.

    I think that one includes the airbrush , a not so good airbrush , and you are paying for it , so you can probably get a better compressor for the same money without the airbrush.

    I looked on amazon , but once i searched for 220v the price doubled.

    I heard one of these the other day at Harbor Freight and was AMAZED at how quiet it was. It is exactly what you are looking for except maybe too high on the price side. Well, and 110 only. Still, it's worth a look.

    You're right. But I have just checked my Aztec/Testor airbrush and seen that I have not any air hose. Nothing to plug it to the compressor. Probably forgotten in France.
