Airbrush and Compressor

After a number of years using an old generic airbrush and compressor, I decided it was time to up my game on the airbrushing front.

I enjoy airbrushing, more than painting, but it is a means to an end. Getting figures on the tabletop.

But the no-brand airbrush I had was having all sorts of problems so I grabbed an Infinity airbrush.

This is a Vallejo badged version of the Infinity Two in One (136543). It isn't the CR Plus, so there are no caps on the ink cups.

Here's a comparison with my old un-branded airbrush.

With the large cup on the Infinity weighs in at around 90 grams meaning it is very light and effortless to use.

After a few spraying sessions, my old compressor starting having issues delivering a consistent flow of air. Then finally started overheating, and cutting out. It had been a solid workhorse over the last 6 or 7 years but I decided it to needed changing.

After a bit of research I came to the conclusion that running two airbrushes, undercoat and detail, would be a reasonable idea. So decided to go for the Sparmax TC620x.

After a couple of long spraying sessions, so far it's been faultless.

All-in-all both of these products are expensive, and there are slightly cheaper alternatives.

For example, take a look at the Evolution and the Ultra airbrushes. Both good quality and a a lower price point.

For compressors the Sparmax TC610H is a good alternative to the more high end 620X.

No sponsorship of any kind went into the making of this post.
