I have read through all of the reviews with low ratings and I can all see why they gave this WONDERFUL product a low rating. It is simply because they are ignorant, not because the product if broken. Heck, I thought my compressor and airbrush were broken when I first got them, too!

As a newbie to this product and airbrushing in general, here is a little newbie guide I threw together:

The compressor: The first deal is that the regulator is not attached. My compressor came with Teflon tape (I'm not sure if yours will, I got mine used). You NEED to wrap the male part on the compressor in Teflon tape then screw on the regulator. This is done so that the none of the air leaks out. Once it is attached, you can hook up the braided hose. Here is the deal with the compressor: when it is turned on, it will not constantly run, it has an auto shut off once it has stored pressure. On top of this, your airbrush must be hooked up to the hose & compressor for the gauge to work. To adjust the pressure, you pull out the black knob on the regulator and then twist it left/right, it should have + and - symbols so you know which way to twist it. Note, the gauge will only read if you have the compressor running and the hose is hooked up to your airbrush! If your compressor has auto shut off and you need to adjust the pressure, just run some air through the airbrush so that it starts back up again. Also, keep in mind when you are airbrushing the compressor will turn itself on and off. THIS IS NORMAL AND A GOOD THING, don't let it alarm you. It means your regulator and compressor are working correctly!

The airbrush: as stated earlier, the airbrush must be hooked up to the compressor and the compressor must be running for it to work properly (this should be obvious, but I will state it anyway). There are two controls on the airbrush, and also some adjustments. The first control is pressing the trigger down, which will make air come out. Note, when it is pressed down there should be NO fluid coming out, just air. Once the trigger is pushed down, when you pull it back your liquid should come out stronger and stronger. If you cannot pull your trigger back far enough to let the liquid out, here is what might be wrong: On the very back of the airbrush (opposite of the front) is a little knob. If you loosen this knob, it will allow you to pull the trigger further and further back allowing you to release more and more liquid.

As I said earlier, I am nowhere near an expert or even an adept on air brushes. As my first air brush, for $80 (I got mine used from Amazon) this is WORTH EVERY PENNY. Airbrushes alone go for $100+, where this is an airbrush AND a compressor AND a regulator (yes, some airbrush/compressor kits don't come with regulators)! As for quality, I honestly don't know how good the airbrush is, but I used it to write my name and paint some model kits, and the paint (water based acrylic thinned with Windex) came out evenly with no splattering. Also, the included booklet is a joke. It is about 5 pages front and back, and basically explains how to clean your airbrush and tells you to practice painting lines, dagger strokes, and dots. The important thing is that it explains how to clean your airbrush. It is EXTREMELY important to keep your airbrush cleaned if you want it to last you forever. The brush gets gunked up with paint quick, so it is important to keep it clean. Just keep in mind that when you purchase this you will have to keep it maintained. It is not too hard to clean, you just need to run some cleaner through it and unscrew some small parts.

Conclusion: If you are looking for a airbrush for painting anything, this is worth it. I personally use it for painting model kits but you can use it for everything else!

I'm not sure why some airbrushed are so expensive. This Master Airbrush is the only airbrush I've ever owned and it produces professional results. It doesn't take a master to use either as the models in the pictures are the only models I've ever done and I had no problems with the airbrush. I recommend using laquer thinner to clean it though as it gets it nice and clean after each use!

This is all your going to need for 99% of us. This kit has everything you need to get started other then paint and thinner. I’m a completely new to airbrushing and this was simple to set up and use on my first go. I first watched how to videos
On YouTube and how to do the maintenance and was good to go.

The airbrush- I don’t see why all the negative reviews for the airbrush. It’s really nice, threads are cut perfectly, it’s easy to take apart to clean, and I can spray from a tiny hair line up to a 1 1/2”. It comes with 0.2, 0.3, and a 0.5 needle no damge to any of the tips all are very sharp! My createx color paints recommends a 0.5 needle @40-50 psi. So I installed the needle and set the air pressure on the compressor accordingly, thinned my paint 10% as recommended from createx paints and gave it a go and I was painting like a pro first go around. No clogs no spitting absolutely not a single problem. The dual action airbrush mechanism is smooth and precise. If you can’t paint with this than a $100 iwata is not going to help you and after using this I’m so glad I saved money on paying a rediculous price for one.

Compressor- have you ever seen such a cute air compressor? Lol.. I guess I’m just use to my 50 gallon shop compressor but this thing is tiny. Also note this is a newer model from the pictures they are showing you, it is now vented on the motor side, the switch has a light to let you know it’s on and the pump and motor is now reversed from the picture. Also the air line for the air brush is solid black and very flexible with a nylon covering.

It’s very very quite! Pumps up quickly and maintains constant consistent air pressure wherever you set it. I seem to like 25-30 psi even thoe createx color paints recommend 40-50 psi for what it’s worth.. btw you have to hold the air trigger down on the airbrush to see what psi you working with then while releasing air adjust the knob on the compressor to your desired air pressure.. btw you have to pull up on the knob and turn clockwise for more air pressure and counter clockwise for less.

I did have a tiny air leak on the fitting from the pump to the tank which was fixed by tightening the fitting a 1/4 turn with a wrench. Which is to be expected when setting up any air compressor. I spent hours sealing my shop compressor to eliminate all leaks from the system this took about 1 min and 45 seconds of that was going to get my wrench.

All in all I’m 110% satisfied with the master airbrush kit and would recommend this kit to anybody looking to get a airbrush. As with any of my reviews I will update if I have any future problems or issues.

Please give a like if you found this review helpful.

You get a gravity fed dual action airbrush (you want this), a quiet compressor with a moisture trap ( you need this), hose, pressure gauge to change psi and a little stand thing to put on the compressor for your airbrush.

For the price it is, you want this. I've lost the cap, bent the needle, and it still works amazingly. The paint sometimes clogs but that's my error from my paint and thinner.

I use acrylic and lacquer paint and thinner for my brush. (I hobby build and paint).

The compressor is quiet and doesn't have an a nonstop noise. Meaning... once the compressor reaches air capacity, it'll stop making noise and idle (not off). Which is great cause it's virtually silent. Once you used up the air it'll just start up again. This is nice because it doesn't just sit there and make loud noises and will not affect your airbrush work in anyway.

Maintenence can't be easier
[...]This link shows you how to assemble/and clean your brush and it can't be anymore straight forward.

I'm pretty sure the negative reviews is either because some reviewers DO NOT know how to operate their kit AND/OR don't understand what exactly their spraying. Or they received a bad defective order from the factory (which is common for anything).

I give this product an A+ for "bang for the buck." This is the first compressor/airbrush I have bought and my first experience using one. I almost bought a different manufacturer's airbrush that used the canned air, and am very glad I didn't. My suggestion is pay the price difference for this model as your painting experience will be much more positive. I use this unit to paint HO train engines, cars, buildings and scenery and it handles all tasks with quality results. There were some problems: I could not initially get a consistent spray pattern and had trouble with air leaks with the connections. Please note other reviewer's comments that it is necessary to wrap connections with Teflon tape. I bought some while waiting for delivery only to find that a roll was included in the package. I also found it necessary to wrap the hose itself where it connects to the airbrush with duct tape to mend a serious leak As long as I keep the tape tightly bound there is no problem. Because of the lack of consistent spraying (note that I used diluted and undiluted Testors enamel paint and also diluted and undiluted acrylic paint) I took apart the airbrush to thoroughly clean it. Unfortunately I couldn't get it back together again and contacted the manufacturer who emailed me instructions. Though difficult to fix because the parts are small and hard to manipulate, patience paid off and reassembly was done. Now the airbrush operates beautifully and gives a professional result. This morning I "weathered" several cars and painted parts for a building. You may want to note my experience in mixing paints. Both enamel and acrylics need to be thinned, the first with enamel thinner and the second with water. Before you try to paint anything test the spray against some cardboard until you get the output you want. This will take some practice to get the right mix. Also, I first put the thinner/water in the reserve tank then added the paint, shaking the two together. I didn't try to mix the two in a separate container as I felt this wasted too much paint which didn't pour. In short, this is a great product as long as you exercise some patience and practice first before trying your first project. I would have given 5 stars but for the disassembly/assembly hassles. Note: it is also a good idea to google the Internet for airbrushing hints as there is some important info out there on cleaning and maintaining the brush. Hope this helps.

I have used this airbrush for quite a few months before deciding to finally write a review. I wanted to get the hang of using it before incorrectly attributing any issues to the machine itself when many of them might actually be user error.

Firstly, this is a nicely packaged machine. The only assembly required was screwing on a few valves and hoses. There has been some back-and-forth on the reviews as to whether the main pressure gauge is installed at the time of shipment or not...on my unit it was installed already. However, the packaging did have a cut-out where it would have been stored if it wasn't pre-installed.

The tank and pump itself is a nice unit. The pressure valve allows you to monitor pressure in the tank as well as adjust the pressure that you want flowing through the airbrush. Once turned on, it will initially fill up and then only run when it needs to fill again. The motor is...quiet-ish. It's not silent by any means, nor is it majorly loud. But it's not enough to be annoying. I did find at some times the unit wants to vibrate closer to the edge of the table as the feet didn't seem to completely hold it in place. This can be fixed by either mounting it permanently to a workbench or to trap it with a ridge that the feet can't vibrate past/over. The tank seems to hold it's pressure for quite a while unused.

The airbrush, while basic and not a top-of-the line one, is actually pretty nice. It is a double action gun, which means you activate the air by pushing down on the trigger, but you apply the flow of paint by slowly pulling back on the trigger. The more you pull back, the more paint is applied. I have been using strictly acrylic paint in my gun since purchase, as I don't want to have to clean up enamel paint which requires running paint thinner through the unit to clean it out. I typically run alcohol or water through mine after scrubbing the paint pot with a brush and rinsing it.

I have found issues where the gun likes to clog, but I've attributed this to me not knowing how to properly mix paints. Most experts recommend the paint having a "milk" texture, meaning that when you use a brush to wipe it up on the side of the paint pot it should look like the consistency of milk. Often I wouldn't mix my paint enough and found globs in it. This can also be found when using cheap store-brand acrylic paints for brushes. They often come out thick and if you don't mix them thoroughly, they will clog your gun. I also found that acrylic paint tends to dry on the tip of the needle faster than other types of paint, so others have recommended keeping paint thinner and a brush nearby to wet the tip of the needle when this happens.

Overall, this air compressor and airbrush is great for starters and those just using it to play around. Professionals or those already versed in airbrushes might want to look at either upgrading some components or buying a higher-end unit. Keep in mind, you can always upgrade the airbrush to a more professional grade and keep the compressor the same. Some quick-fit disconnectors can always allow you to swap out airbrushes easily.

I purchased this airbrush for one single paint a very large 3D printed model that I was in the process of printing and building. I put a ton of time and effort into the print, so I wanted to make sure that it was going to look as good as it could, and I quickly found with some test pieces that using brushes on it just wasn't going to give it the look I was going for.

I did a bit of research and settled on the Master Airbrush set that's listed here, and to be honest I couldn't be happier. I have never used a REAL airbrush before...I had only used the Testor's one that uses propellant to spray the paint, which really just makes it more like a glorified spray paint device.

I watched a few videos on YouTube about how to go about using the device, and when it arrived I quickly gave it a shot. I mixed Tamiya acrylic paint with Tamiya thinner in the ratio that I found on Tamiya's site for mixing paint for airbrushes, and I found it to work very well.

I absolutely loved the level of control that I had with the airbrush...I could lay just a little bit of paint if I wanted to, or I could put more on at a time. I quickly found my way around using the thing and ended up with GREAT results on the model I was working on.

The set comes with pretty much everything you need to get started, and I found that the only thing I needed to get in order to get started was paint, thinner, and some airbrush cleaner. I would highly recommend grabbing some cleaner when you order it, as it's nice to be able to use it to clean out the brush after every use. I found that by cleaning it every time I was done using it I had no issues at all whenever I went to use it again.

I know it's fairly basic, and probably not top of the line...but for my uses and the amount of money I spent I feel that this airbrush setup is an incredible value. For getting started, or for doing just very basic projects, I think you couldn't go wrong with this setup. Highly recommended.

If you're just getting started with airbrushing miniatures this is absolutely the package you want to go with. For the price and the compressor, airbrush and hose it's a really great deal. I haven't had any issues at all with the compressor or hose but I will say the airbrush it's self is.... Um... Not terribly great....

It's fine for a beginner if you want to mess around with it and start out, but I had a problem with it clogging far too easily no matter how I mixed my paints. Also one of the times I took it appart for a deep cleaning the trigger fell appart, even after it was reassembled (surprisingly difficult despite the simplicity) it has never quite been the same...I finally upgraded to an Iwata brand airbrush and WOW....using the iwata one made me realize how much nicer it was compared to the one in this kit...(plus they have variable cup sizes to change as needed where this one is just one solid piece all the way through). I never really noticed with the one in this kit a problem with controlling the spray but after using the iwata one it really showed me that this kit brush just isnt as responsive as a slightly more expensive brush, but for the price what do you expect really.

The compressor and hose are great though, I've had it for quite a while now and it's still going strong. So despite the not so stellar brush, I'm still giving this a 5 star rating, because it really is a good deal for an absolute beginner and it's a great solid little compressor.

The Compressor is great. Just pony up the money and get the one with the air tank.

The product is great but it's capacity is limited and pulling a DYI and installing an air-tank costs more , as in this area you can't get an air tank , the hose and tape for the assembly for less than 35, you're looking at an additional 50$~60~ in spending to get a steady airflow.

Sound wise : It's about as loud as a battery operated hammer drill or a medium sized vacuum cleaner. Not too loud, but if you don't have a muffling mat or something to sit it on, it will be noticed as the compressor is constantly kicking on.

The airbrush is so-so, don't go throwing it around and it should last for a while.

I'd return this one and order the one with the tank but currently, I actually need this for a project.

This is a great starter airbrush set at a fair price. The dual action is smooth and easy to control. It produces an adequate spray and should be suitable for people new to airbrushing (like me).

Now onto the challenges and the reason for the 4-star review.
1) Cleaning is difficult with this airbrush. At the bottom of the airbrush cup where the paint feeds past the needle there are sharp corners that tend to trap paint and are difficult to clean. Also, the exterior of the airbrush is polished chrome which paint easily cleans off. The cup interior is a more grit-blasted finish prior to chrome plating, which holds paint more.
2) Complete disassembly is at your peril. There are a number of small parts that don't easily go back together and the instructions and booklet that come with this are pretty much useless. It took me about an hour and a few youtube videos to figure out how to get everything working again.
3) The needle bends very easily. Take care with it while cleaning.

Overall it's a solid purchase if you are looking to do a little bit of airbrushing but don't want to be a pro at it. Expect to spend 20-30 minutes cleaning every time you change colors.
