I have been using the three-tip Paasche VL kit for more than 2 decades now, and it has rarely let me down. For fine detail work, though, I still fall back to my trusty old Thayer & Chandler. Still one of the best airbrushes I have ever used.

I have to vote for my AZTEK A470. It has a nice shape to it and is easy to handle.

For the casual painter what is the best top feeder Iwata? The Eclipse HP-C, Eclipse HP-CS, or the Revolution HP-CR? What's the difference between these three?

I consider myself a casual painter and I used an Iwata Revolution CR for quite some time and was very happy with it.

Very good brush with an absoultely HUGE paint cup.

ok, i've found loads of iwata's online.
whats the difference, what do all the letters mean?

i've only used airbrushes with pots screwed on, is there an advantage or disadvantage of gravity fed? do you waste much paint when you change colour?

i want to try fine detail like painted headlights but still be able to cover large areas (this is less important).

thanks for your help.
