I am getting back into model building after a hiatus and was looking for suggestions for a good QUIET compressor/pressure regulator combo. I have a decent Paasche double action brush but the Badger model 80-1 is too loud and doesnt have a pressure regulator. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

I think if you find loud your old badger compressor also the list posted by Rob is a bit to "loud",they are all from 60Db up,very quiet for a normal compressor but if you need something small and just for airbrushing the model like the Master si better,the same model are build uder many different brand, is around 45Db, a bit more than a fridge.
