    The Royalmax brushes are branded Asian imports. Some of them are pretty fair to very good - quality is a loose term, but can be hit or miss. I have had very good success with several brushes that were also branded by Royalmax - although, I see in the link you provided the model number is the same, but the actual brush is a different construction...

    I have a good deal of fooling around with these on my FB page - https://www.facebook.com/davegs.airbrush.exploration/

    when i first started he was pushing the Veda brand, in hindsight they were junk but they lasted long enough to have a play with and confirm that airbrushing was something i wanted to persue....... I now posess way to many Iwata airbrushes and joine then AAD club within 6 months but i'm enjoying myself

    I recommended to a friend eclipse series, but I think he wanna save some buck. Not sure if cheap airbrushes would be saving on a long run.

    Tell him to save for the Eclipse. If Chucks current suggestions are the same as the Veda's that i got then he'll be binning it fairly quickly.
    IF he just want to know if airbrushing is something he wishes to continue with then they will serve that purpose, he learn pretty quickly that its not as easy as the Chucks of the world make it look, especially if he has no art background. (which doesnt mean he wont be able to airbrush, just that the learning curve will be more challenging. )

    as long as he understands that we arent always 100% serious and that sometimes the language barrier is a bit confusing. But we can normally work things out :)

    thanks to all for your help, it is much appreciated

    i ended up ordering the iwata neo trn-2
    should be decent for t-shirts and signs
    pistol grip because of tendonosis issues in my arm, i thought this might be a better setup
    plus it has the preset function for times my wife may use it (stencil work)

    huskystafford has been helping me months wrap my head around this new direction, very kind of him

    Glad you got sorted,
    if you head across to http://www.airbrushforum.org/introductions/ you can do a proper intro with all the normal details.
    Where you call home,
    What sort of paint you have / looking at getting
    What got you started in airbrushing.

    It all just helps to get to know you a little better.
