ive been looking at these for a while and wondered wether it would be sufficient for spraying 1/24 cars, the airbrush looks kind of cheap, but the compressor doesnt look too bad. let me know what you think guys

You're planning on making your cars look tanned?

It doesnt look worth it at all.

Yeah, I'd be weary. . .

First off, it probably doesn't have a moisture trap. Secondly, I think those tanning compressors are a "Pulse" type and gettin a good flow would be pretty hard.

Surely you can find something better for that kind of money, no?

Worth a try though . . .

It doesnt look worth it at all.

Wouldn't recommend it. For a start it looks plastic so may not be built to withstand stronger solvents. For 60 GBP you could buy a very good airbrush and be partway to afording a compressor.

yea that thing doesn't look reliable at all for airbrushing...if u really don't want to spend alot on a compressor and airbrush...an idea would be to check out ebay, or a hobby store to see if they have places where they sell used ones...worth a shot...better then buying a tanning thing lol
