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??

Thanks in advance

Dave

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!

Dave

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





cheers

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

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 Bearair.com 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...

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 now i just have to buy a decent air compressor .

This is what i'm using atm:

harder&steenbeck evolution 2in1 silverline
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.
