I checked the RCTech search function and could not find any information about my airbrush of choice.
It is the Harder & Steenbeck Colani airbrush. http://www.germanairbrush.com/colani.html
I am not a professional airbrusher but I get professional results on Lexan and plastic every time even with problem (acrylic) colors like white and yellow. Cleaning is easier than with any airbrush guns I owned like Badger and Iwata since the cup can be removed and you get a direct access to the mixing chamber. Now painting with ten different colors in one session is not much of a bother.
Also the mixing chamber is very short, so only the cleaning brush and not the metal handle has to be pushed through. No danger of scratching the inside wall.
It looks funny but the grip and trigger feel comfortable right away and now my old airbrush feels strange and the trigger seems to be in the wrong place if you work for hours.

H&S are top rated tools, but most guys aren't committed enough to drop $275 on an AB.

Ok, so I have been messing up bodies for a little while now, and I am looking to upgrade to a new airbrush. I am looking at either an Iwata Cr, or the Cs,--any input. My other issue may be with my compressor, I am using a construction type with a regulator, but am having mixed results-sometimes good, others not so good...

This thread made me realize it's time to retire my Paasche VL and get an Iwata HP-CS.

yeah the iwatas are definately the best, the hp-cs about 110.00 from coastairbrush.com they are an direct iwata dealer.

also a tip i once received from crosseyed one of the best airbrushers in the world from canada, was to add a little 409 to the water based paint as it actually melts the paint and makes color transistions super smooth

Can anyone comment on what compressors they have used? Right now I'm using a regular craftsman compressor but it's loud as hell. Are there any airbrush specific compressors that are truly silent or close to it? I'd love to be able to airbrush late at night but this noisy compressor makes it impossible.

BTW I'm looking for a used iwata eclipse hp-cs or revolution cr if anyone knows somebody selling one.

I just started airbrushing and am almost finished my 2nd ab'd shell.

I'm using the Paasche DA400R with Faskolor paints and seems to work quite well and is fairly quiet. Definitely wouldn't wake anyone up at night if you were airbrushing in the basement or garage. I ordered it from Tower for about $180.

Would this be a good starter set for an airbrush rookie or would I be better off getting a Paashe set? I think they sell a combo kit for like $290. Thanks in advance for the help.

When I first started Ibought the Master ibeleive the SB-82 which is a knock-off of the Iwata, I then purchased another to add to my arsenal. But over time and having to replace the needle and cap the noticed the neddle was'nt sitting centered in the cap. This caused a flat/caligraphy pattern and frequent tip clogging.
I Then got the Iwata HP CP+ and must say if I would have had purchased inthe begining it would have saved a ton of headaches!!
I'm a beleiver in you get what you pay for now... IWATA
