The one in my second link is the compressor I have, it is as quiet as my computer when it runs (the GMC Cyclone)

Joker you are a perfect age to learn to airbrush. I have a load compressor but just leave it outside and run a hose in. Also if you manage to get one there are several learning airbrush techniques available online. Your art department at school may be able to provide you with information and help learing to airbrush.

I would love to see it where your work is always so amazing Gary. I'm lucky to get crisp lines

Since price is definitely an issue for Joker (I remember being penny-less at that age ) there is always the good ol' tire tube method. Had a buddy studying art, and he could paint some fantastic stuff while sitting on an inner tube ....and helps keep pressure off your haemorrhoids !! LOL

Is there a good way to minimize the pinholes in depron before/after painting? My template had a lot of curves so required a lot of pins to keep the edge down...but now I've got 100 pinholes in the foam.

I usually stick a pin in each end, for alignment, then weight the rest down with coins. Airbrush pressures are so low, the paint never creeps under the mask. Unless of course, you're painting full fuselage etc rather than flat foam?

I use metal washers to hold the poster board in place works great, and no holes to deal with.

Thanks Coreman,

Painting crisp lines does get somewhat tedious. Would be nice to paint something a little more free form for a change

Here is a link to my post about using washers for weight, with photos and examples. Sorry I didn't include it on my above post.

Your stuff is always inspiring works of art. I don't know how people can fly some of your commissioned works

I watch the videos and understand the concepts and see the amazing outcomes and can't just DO it

Washers are a good idea, if the mask is big enough. In this case, I was masking a thin wavy line...so that wouldn't work.

So, I am looking at this at the moment. Is it quiet enough to work with inside? If not can someone suggest a quieter one for the same price? I feel like I've asked this before but I forget what thread it was in so I dont know the link.......:embarrased:
