Sparmax AC-500 regulator disassembly
Posted by Microbacchus on Monday, October 01, 2018 1:42 PM

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to a very kind Christmas present I returned to scale modeling after a huge (20 years+)  break. I am about to paint this first model (Italeri 1:35 Sherman M4A1 76mm), but I have issues with the installation of my compressor (Sparmax AC-500). I've found a tutorial on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-jh6jhLJTQ which advises to install a coiled air hose between the tank and the regulator (starts from 7:35). According to Sparmax's offical website, this compressor came with a detacheable regulator, tho I cannot unscrew it, since the massive frame blocks its rotation. I have no idea if the short screw which connects the regulator directly to the tank is a one or two piece item, so I do not dare to hold down the regulator while screwing the connector. Anyone has experience with this type of regulators or knows a good guide?

Thanks in advance!:)
