New Airbrush
Hello everyone!

Recently I have been thinking of getting a replacement for my of old Badger airbrush.
I am just not sure of what brand or model I should pick. Lately I have been looking into Iwata airbrushes but I am not sure if they are a good deal, they seem kind of expensive.

Anybody has any suggestions?? :confused:

Thanks in advance

David...what Badger are you using? I've got a Badger 200G w/fine tip and needle and like it fine....I switched from the bottom feed and that made everything all better for me.

If you can find one, try and get the H&S Evolution, it is the best AB i've ever had, nice fine spray, and very easy to clean! ;)

I am using Gunze's MrHobby Procon Boy FWA Double Action Platinum 0.2mm
(what a mouthful :)) It's a very good airbrush, easier to use and clean and itdoesn't clog when spraying Vallejo.

There's a PSI control valve at the bottom front of the airbrush and it's allows you to adjust the air pressure on the fly. Nice feature to have.

I got it from a LHS but you can get it from Rainbow Ten.

hi david ...

i use a badger 150 and a badger 100 myself but i am thinking of an additional one ... until two weeks ago i absolutely wanted an iwata but then i informed me on evolution airbrushes - they are brilliant!

i'd go for a harder&steenbeck evolution 2in1 ... it costs as much as the iwata cri but has two nozzle types - 0,2 and 0,4mm ... and it's a gravity feed

or better: go for the h&s infinity ... it's my dream of sleepless nights and most probably i'll get myself that one :D

David, whatever you get I would suggest getting one with a preset feature i.e. you can't pull the trigger past your preset setting. This is really helps you to paint consistent lines.

Iwatas are very nice :thumb:

WTF Laura?! That line HAS to be a fake. lol ;)

I've been using a Thyler and Chandler Vega 1000. It's a gravity feed double action.

Whichever one you pick, get it from they have absolutly phenomonal prices (check against the manufacture's list price) and their service is good too:

Good tip on Bearair Fletcher...I went through DixieArt for mine, $45 w/free shipping (1 week) vs $39 @ Bear...though I didn't see shipping charges...


Goody Goody, new toys for Dave.

I used to have a Badger 200 with the Crown nozzle and fine tip but changed to a Tamiya Spray Work HG-T as it has a nicer feel in my hand and you can lock the needle position in place for painting consistant lines , but it doesnt like the lifecolor paints much even when they are heavily thinned so i have ordered a Iwata Micron CM-C Plus which i hope to get soon :D now i just have to buy a decent air compressor :( .

This is what i'm using atm:
harder&steenbeck evolution 2in1 silverline :cool:
The wheel at the back let's you control the maximum paintflow, and i have an aditional valve at the botom to control the airflow.
