    I would say my HP-C is more of a work horse, and my CM-SB for all detail work.

    I'm the proud owner of a Harder & Steenbeck Ultra, a 0.2 mm

    It's my first airbrush, and I think it's a great airbrush to start with. It has the same needle and nozzle as the H&S evolution, and is basicly the same airbrush, only for abour half the price.

    i use a passche that i bought at a pawn shop for 35$ with all three tip sizes. parts are inexpensive.. had to replace #1 needle right away..(had a bent tip). also purchased a badger velocity when it was on sale for 65$ .. so far great for my level of experience (beginner) ....never having used anything else i have nothing to compare them too and being on a tight budget anyway i guess i was lucky to find them so cheap

    hey everybody... Well I used a "marca patito" airbrush for now lol I'm from Ecuador so "marca patito" is a reference for things that haven't got a cool brand or are the basic generic of all the types... I bought it for 20 bucks and it's doing the job but I guess I'll get an IWATA when I improve my airbrushing.
    PS: My english isn't very good is it? Well... I'm ecuadorian so I speak spanish. If you have something to tell me please do it slow lol kiddin'

    I use badger 150's (which I'd like to upgrade to the R3R Rage) the 155 Anthem, and for detailed work I use Badgers Renegade Volocity. I like the way their brushes are put together and that spare parts are cheap and easy to get hold of directly from the US.

    Fellow AB'ers
    I use Harder and Steenbeck Silverline Evolution range gravity and suction feed, I only know this manufactures also had the cheepy China type but that was short lived.
    Parts are interchangeable on the H&S range quick to take apart and assemble.

    I have several Master's series all double action and 1 paasche H. single action this is about all I can afford thanks to being disable.
    They are the g22,g23,g444,sb84,e90, then the paasche h- I used it to do the base layer if I'm doing it all in one color.

    I own a Iwata HP-CS since about 2 weeks....made me sell my 4 old airbrushes from Black Bull ( china made is my guess ) Wishing to buy more Iwata airbrushes especially for details so most likely if i can save up somehow i'll be going for Micron 0,18 or Ultron SE0.10-C airbrushes.....put the money from the sell into larger compressor first. The Iwata is very easy to clean so far ( the older arbrushes i had i put in ulrasone cleaners for days and it would just not get clean.) But i take reference to what everyone is telling here about what they use....might help me with my next buy.

    Hi all, Im brand new to this forum, and airbrushing in general. As this is my first post, I just thought I'd ask what people's thoughts are on the Badger 360 universal airbrush? I bought one of these a week or so ago, and have been mucking around on paper, doing dagger strokes, dots, lines etc. as I've watched the mighty Airbrush tutor do on youtube (Mitch is a classic! makes me laugh alot).
    Where is Airbrush tutor based anyway? Sydney I'm guessing?
    I live in Bendigo, Victoria (Australia, for anyone who doesnt know where it is)
    I'm going to have to order some paints online, as there's not really anyone who deals with airbrush supplies here (which sucks!)
    Anyway, I very much look forward to learning, and improving, and sharing it all with you..
    Cheers, Paul.

    i bought a iwata neo to get me started , had it around 6 days and im already looking around my room to see what i can sell to upgrade lol
    its still better than i am but the needle doesnt draw back centred as the nozzle doesnt sit straight on this one so although it most likely doesnt effect what im doing too much its still in my head that it could be better

    I used to paint with a Sparmax airbrush, mostely used for RC bodies.
    But since I own a H&S infinty, it's a Huge difference!
  19. Hi

    Iwata Revolutions for me now, CR, BR and BCR

    In the past it was all Badger, 100, 150, 155, 200, 175

    I have also had a few Chinese Knock offs as well and found the one sold under the VEDA Name was really good, even for an Iwata Custom Micron Knockoff it was a good reliable brush even though it was only £14 at the time I bought mine. I now only use Iwatas and to be honest I cannot say they are miles better than this brush was, but they are better just not by as much as I would have hoped when I spent all that money. I do know that is probably down to me and in the hands of a more demanding artist the difference will be much more obvious but for spraying normal modelling enamels and acrylics they are all very close.
