    Hello to all,

    I'm trying hard to gather all supplies that I need for my airbrushing needs (cosplay prop painting, light textile [t-shirt, shoes], hard surface with .5 and .35 mm airbrushes with probably Wicked from Createx) and have found a lot thanks to many hours of reading here and another US based seller. I'll be buying most of the colors and airbrushes from the said (not said-prob not allowed) US site but I cannot get compressors from there as it's 110V 60 Hz but here (Turkey) we use 220V 50 Hz.

    To all European airbrushers, I have three questions:

    1) Do you know any Silent-aire Super Silent 50-TC or 30-TC sellers from Europe who ships internationally? (220V 50Hz)

    2) The best airbrush compressor I can find in Turkey is Sparmax TC-620X and Sparmax AC-500? Are these any good for my needs with long working hours?

    3) Do you have any other brand advice that sells internationally in Europe?

    Waiting patiently for answers...

    Plenty of compressors on eBay (which I guess you have in Turkey). As long as you ONLY need the compressor for airbrushing, something like this should do it: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HIGH-PER...SOR-AS186-TANK-FILTER-MANOMETER-/302727196171 I'd guess a Luxemburg based supplier advertising on UK eBay will ship to Turkey?
    I've a similar one - they're Chinese made, but seem pretty reliable. Do get one with an air tank.

    Nobody here in Turkey sells "Createx" or "Wicked", they're probably cheaper stateside, and I'm gonna have to pay customs + shipping anyway. If there's any shop that sells "Wicked" in EU, please name them so I can compare prices.

    Yes, definitely going for one with an air tank. I wish I could get Silent-aire though I think I'm out of luck... nobody seems to ship a 220V 50Hz here.

    Just go to a Dentist supply store in your country and by a compressor from them, the original and best silent compressors are made for dentist and not for artist! Or look for dentist compressors on ebay

    you sure about that? Cause all I see is info about tracking and not about delivery. If I would be you I would send mail if I would be interested in their equipment.

    But to be on the same page... What is Silent for you? Cause for me, silent can be 70 db...

    Try BAMBI silent air compressors (40dB). They use similar engines found on household fridges, thus very quiet.
    Look at ' www.graphicair.co.uk ' as they have the full range from cheaper models to big industrial expensive stuff.
    They ship world wide also.

    I have the BB24V which is compact 24ltr air tank and its excellent.
