With my Michael's 50% off any item coupon I picked up a Badger Cresendo 175-7 airbrush kit today. I have a compressor already, but recall a few necessary items mentioned here such as a moisture trap and in-line pressure regulator. Are there any other essential items that will make for better performance that I should be investing in? I am looking forward to putting this thing to good use here real quick.

Thanks for the advice.

Dave, I think you got what you need if you include the pressure regulator and the moisture trap. The regulators usually come with a dial pressure gauge on top. Don't forget the correct size fittings to plumb all the pieces together in series, and use teflon plumbers tape to insure air tightness.
