I have one of these, or at least very similar.  Works very well.  It does not have a constant pressure reservoir, but by using the airbrush in burst-passes at a constant distance it has fulfilled my needs.
I would recommend it.

You can get the same one with a reservoir for 10 more, go for the one with the tank :-))

Hi Timbo it was good to meet you at Balne Moor
I have one ,if I remember  it came from some firm in Sheffield ,it holds pressure well get the regulator set and it works the air brush without running all the time . I have had no problems with it .

That kit is worth having just for the airbrushes, they might be cheap ones but will still cost about 20 quid each, throw in another tenner for the hose and you get the compressor for free :-))

Go for the kit with the tank attached, there can be problems with out of the air flow "puffing" causing splatter on the finish
