Greetings My Fellow Modelers,
As most of you know my biggest problem was the air compressor and living in the Philippines were the electrictty current is 220 volts. I found some air compressor at BNA Model World and Hobby Tools both in Australia. However the price and the shipping cost would been high and I would have to save up in order to buy one. Then I started to look at commercial air compressor, found two that was small and had a 36 litre tanks on them. Then last night, I was on line searching I found this one web site that is mostly deals with Philippines on line store and came across the Air Compressor I found at the local store, they wanted 6,999 peso and I start to laugh about it, and my wife ask me why I was laughing and I told her that these people want 6,999 peso for the compressor we found in Surigao, were at the store it was only 5,250 peso. I happen to look in the lower left hand corner and found this: http://www.lazada.com.ph/powercraft-as186-oil-free-mini-air-compressor-with-tank-2144203.html Here it was a Powercraft AS 186 COMPRESSOR. i told my wife that this is the one I needed and ask if I could get it and she said yes. At $118.81 and free shipping. So I bought it. So now it will be here between May 15th or May 18th. One down and now on to air brushes and paint booth.

Nothing better than finding EXACTLY what you want at a good price. The anticipation of the delivery will drive you insane. As I wrote here before , I put a small desk fan behind mine and the compressor stays cool to slightly warm no matter how long I run it. Enjoy!!
