Tamiya Airbrush,

They are made in the same factory as Iwata in Japan but priced better. Can just mail order direct from Japan.

I use an Iwata HP-CR for broad stuff and an HP-C+ for finer details. I'm new so I haven't had a chance to try anything else yet but so far I've been very impressed with my Iwatas.

lots of people seem to be loving the Iwata hp-cs. has anyone used the Iwata neo and how does it compare?
also what is best for doing rc bodies, 0.5 or 0.35 needle?
thanks, this will be my first airbrush.

I have a Neo that i used for enamels. It works fine. The needle size depends on what youíre painting and what type of paint. 0.35 is too small for water based. 0.5 can do water or enamel, so most RC painters use a 0.5.

Hope this helps

Looking to get an Iwata HP-CS based off all the recommendations here. It seems it comes with the 0.35mm needle and people are recommending the 0.5mm needle. Do I need to get a 0.5mm nozzle as well to make the change or just the needle?

Found the answer in another forum, need the needle, nozzle, and cap to all be 0.5mm to do the conversion.

So Iíve been trying adapt to using these RC specific paints with my Iwata HP brushes and finding both of the models I have are just meant for much finer detail and even when thinning the paint Iím clogging up to easy.
Just ordered an Iwata Medea Eclipse HP CS that says itís meant for heavier acrylics but I donít see where the needle size is actually stated. Can anyone clue me in on that and confirm whether that model is a good choice?
Thanks

Iwata hp-cs with a .5 tip conversion. Easy to clean.

I voted Iwata because that's mainly what I use. Custom Micron CM-B and an Eclipse HP-CS with upgraded handle which I use for artwork. For painting RC bodies I use a Harder & Steenbeck Evolution CR Plus w/ a quick fix handle and a 0.4 needle. Also have a Harder & Steenbeck Infinity CR Plus 0.15 that I use for artwork. I'm probably gonna sell my Infinity and replace it with a Iwata HP-B Plus.
