In Topic: Airbrush, and compressor question

The Iwata Eclipse comes in both types. The CS model is a gravity feed with a .35mm tip, the BCS is a siphon feed with a .5mm tip. Hobby Lobby carries both. I think the BCS is about $20 cheaper. I don't think you will finder better prices or service for other airbrushes from chicagoairbrushsupply.com

You can buy the Eclipse for about $120.00 at Hobby Lobby witha 40% off coupon. Check the prices for all airbrushes at chicagoairbrushsupply.com  They have free shipping on most. They sell the Revolution TR models for $221. Sometimes the .35mm tip in the Eclipse seems a bit small when painting bigger stuff. Take a look at the Paasche Talon TG3F set that includes .25mm,.38mm and .66mm tips and needles. Definitely get a gravity feed over a  siphon feed. Take a look at the Neo for Iwata trigger airbrushes TRN-1(.35mm tip) and TRN-2(.5 mm tip), I have both and love them, The Neo's are backed by Iwatas 5 year warranty. I have the Paasche Talon,  Iwata Eclipse CS , Iwata Revolution CR(.5mm tip) and a Paasche Millenium. My favorite to use is the Neo for Iwata TRN-1. The triggers feel great in your hand.

If you have the money buy the Iwata, it's far superior. The trigger style is awesome to use. I have the Neo for Iwata version, the TRN-2. It's about half the price of the Iwata. Proper thinning will give great results with the smaller .5mm tip. Checkout Chicago Airbrush Supply for some of the best prices around the net.
