    My name is Ken new to airbrushing but been interested for year's now got a bit of spare time so I thought why not. Just looking for a complete setup but it's so confusing! Been thinking iwata hp cs but don't know which compressor ( Bambi bb15v looks good but are they compatible).

    Hi Ken, welcome from New Zealand!

    The compressor has WAY more flow and pressure than you will ever need so it certainly checks those boxes. The Bambi's are also quiet. For the coin you can probably get something quiet and more airbrush specific unless you are looking for other air applications. https://www.smdesigns.co.uk/collections/compressors-iwata/products/c-iw-smartp

    Make sure you get one with a tank!

    Check out this video from the guy who set up OAF!

    Mark has posted a really useful video. But essentially all airbrushes and compressors are compatible. You just have to have the right combination of connections. the HP-CS is a great tool. Welcome to the forum.

    Thank you both for your guidance, looks like I've come to the right place. The more I looked the more confused I got.

    Confusion is compulsory at the beginning, it gets less as your journey progresses, ..... it never totally left in my case lol
