Badger crescendo or 150

8 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello everyone, I was curious what the preference was between the Badger Crescendo 175 and the 150 were? I'm hoping to make the leap to airbrushing soon, and can't find any comparisons between these two units. I believe the 150 and 100 share parts, which would be nice as the 150 is siphon fed, whilst the 100 is gravity, So in theory I could use parts between the two? Any ideas?

My choice between the two would be the 150 . My main choice for airbrushing model cars would be the Paache H series single action , using the # 5 head and needle assembly . Anything more is simply overkill unless you plan on doing alot of fine line airbrushing or weathering .

I have reviews of both the 150 and the 175 on my site that might be of some help.

There is also a review of the Paasche H.

Thanks for the responses guys! Sounds like the 150 will be the way to go for me. Also , Thanks for the link to your website Don. It is very informative and will be an often used resource for me.

I disagree with you choices. The badger 150 is the better brush but if I were you I would upgrade to something gravity fed. Much easier to clean. I have had nothing but problems with my 150. The needle bearing might give you lots of headaches. Goto the badger website first and see what they have. Thats where they put the blemished product. Right now there is a badger 100 for just over thirty dollars. If you do buy a badger make sure it has the screw in bearing. And check out the online buy-sell website in your area as well. I just found an Iwata eclipse for 85, never used.

I'm going a bit different...Badger 155.....shoots everything....from mud to lacquers....it is a siphon feed , but comes with a non covered cup.

I have a couple of others....Gravity feed is not needed for most modeling needs.....its for fine details.
