    I do recognize it, but as one I know very little about. This is a Russian brush - there was one for sale on Ebay not terribly long ago - but I have no actual info on them.

    This actually looks exactly like the one that was being sold on Ebay... not like it, but exactly it.

    Delicate is the word but a joy to use with the right mix thanks for the ink info` I `m drawn to trying black or indigo acrylic ink on watercolour paper or may be the handmade stuff wonder if anyone has airbrushed onto velum

    Sorry about that I was just curious XD, I'm Daniel from Costa Rica I got that airbrush from my dad a while a go and have not been able to use it due to not having a way to get it connect it to a compresor so I got myself a new one (Badger No. 150) but I'm still no good with it, probably because my compresor has no way to control the pressure anyway I was looking through my stuff and I found that little guy on the picture so I was trying to get info on it to see if I can get it to work.

    It’s only a little bit of info because no one knows anything about it, not because we don’t want to share the info and I don’t recall seeing any Russian members :)

    I've got the same one.
    The airbrush's called "ETON" originally "ЭТОН". Was manufactured mostly during the Soviet era in one of the soviets repuplics Bielarus (BSSR), Vitebsk area, Novolukoml city (or town).
    Great thing for the collection.

    The airbrush does not have any air valve, so the air flow goes constantly when attached to the pressurized air hose. You need to install the regulator or switch on/off valve. You can regulate only paint flow with the trigger, which is so stiff, that it's not possible to work with it for long period.
    To attach it to standard 1/8" hose I had to order custom made fitting.

    I can remember:) Ukrainians, Russians and people from Bielarus came from one old big country, had the same language and history, for they were one nation. Now Russian, Ukrainian, Bielarus languages have some differences, but we can freely understand each other without any interpreter. Though these peoples are divided by the borders, but there's almost no difference in all these people traditions etc. till now.
    Just for historical reference:)

    I have a couple of single- and double-action Paasches, an old Badger 150, and a no-name that came with the airbrush compressor kit I just bought at Harbor Freight. So far my favorite is the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS I picked up from ebay years ago for a song (NIB less than $80).
