My litlle Rolands will run my IWATA LPH80 all day long non stop; and I have the big tip on it. I have also used the mini detail gun from Harbor Freight on and it ran very well, as well as on a very large compressor.

The best thing is it is quiet and does not trip the breakers of blow fuses, as such I can run it almost anywhere at anytime not worrying that I will wake anyone up, or knock the lights out.

You can even be standing next to it when it is running and have a conversation. I
must remember to keep it far away from what I am spraying, as the nose is not an issue, but over spraying getting in it still would be. It does have a smaller tank so I initially was worried about spraying, but for models detail guns are all that are needed

I have run a larger gun for a couple of quick sprays on big cabinets, that gun spray pattern was over 12 inches so it would paint a model real fast; but I waited between patterns. The gun pattern was really to large maybe even big for spraying a car.

All my guns are now HLVP. I was told if I went that route to stick to it.
