Compressor advice

Hi guys

I'm returning to the hobby after a bit of a hiatus & I could do with some advice if possible.

I need to get myself a new compressor. I've found one on Ebay that appears to be the right sort but it is quite a lot cheaper than what I expected to pay (half the price of a Badger 1100). Which makes me wonder if there is anything wrong with it.

Am I being paranoid, or is this good enough. I make 1/35th scale armor. I've a couple of airbrushes I use, a Badger & an Aztek & pretty much only use acrylics (Tamiya) if that has any bearing.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
