  • Looking for Airbrush help

    Hi I'm looking for some input on airbrush's. I want to buy a high end airbrush I read some inputs on the old site and think a lot of you guys liked the Iwata's.
    Let me know brand and model you like
    Thanks for the help, Glenn

    I have the Iwata Eclipse HP CS it is a very good airbrush capable of very fine high quality paint work I’ve been trying to bring my skill level up to match the gun which I will never achieve but in the process I’ve gotten some very nice paint jobs with it. Very happy with it 😍

      I'm very pleased as well with the Iwata Eclipse HP CS. Just did my first car with it after doing one with a cheap Chinese clone - HUGE difference!
      The only thing that is somewhat of a concern is the small tip (0.35) on the Iwata - not the greatest for large panel coverage. Go slow, and build your coats up for a smooth finish.

          When I visited my buddy Norb in Chicago last month, he had a very impressive Iwata setup. The compressor just impressed the heck out of me. This thing was so quiet, you could hardly tell if it was on. They sure aren't giving them away, but if you want something super quiet that maintains correct pressure, it might be worth the investment.

                Iwata Eclipse is what I have. A good all around airbrush workhorse.

                  I only use an airbrush when the color that I want to use is not available in a rattle can. I have an inexpensive Harbor Freight airbrush which looks like a clone of a name brand one. I don't use the airbrush enough to have a dedicated compressor, so I use the one that I have for inflating tires and that makes quite a racket. I can pump up a 5 gallon air tank and use that as my air source.

The Iwata will do very nice, fine work but I find it a pain to clean. I have not used it since I got the Paasche which is a single action-external mix vs the Iwata's dual action internal mix. So far I have only painted 1/25th scale models. These were both done with the H.
