Default whats your favorite airbrush?

im in the market of getting an airbrush. im looking for something that i dont have to upgrade. something i can use for a long long time, something that has spray adjustment (from very fine to wide). something i can get parts available. something that will not hurt my pocket. so, what do u recommend?

I use the paasche VL,it's dual action so you can get fine control of paint/air flow for great detail.the cost is great and it's great quality too.

Yeah, get the VL set. It will come with 3 needles and tip sizes to vary your spray pattern from fine to wide. It's a great all-purpose gun. Easy to clean, inexpensive and all inclusive set. All you will need is a compressor and the moisture trap filter/regulator. Extra jars are nice to have too, but as a set the VL is a best buy to me. I've owned 3 of them.

What do you think of the IWATA eclipse series? I'm interested in the brand but I'm unsure of the quality.

I'm not a fan of gravity feed for anything more than small touchups or fine lines... I have an Eclipse, definitely reccomend it....

Get a siphon feed for the big stuff and a gravity feed for the detail work....

I used to use Badger 150's. Had 3 of them. When I switched to the thicker water based paints I just couldn't get them to work as well as I wanted. Switched to the Iwata Eclipse and I love it. Sold 2 of my Badgers and kept 1 as a backup.

Default Iwata's

I have been painting for a while now and have used many different brushes. The Iwata's are by far the smoothest and most reliable airbrush I have used. I doubt I will ever use anything else from now on. I have 3 of the Iwatas now, 2 gravity feeds and one bottom feed and they work flawlessly.

That's the one I was looking at. Great, you've helped me make up my mind. Thanks.
