Hey Guys! Getting a new airbrush and wanted to get some opinions!
Paasche VL or Iwata HP-CS or HP-BCS?? Why? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've had both brands and love my Iwata gravity feed brush.

I have a VL and an Iwata HP-B+. Very different airbrushes. My opinion: gravity feed is superior in every way. Whatever brand, you need some variety in tip sizes. The VL is OK for all-over color basecoating with the fine tip. I never used its larger tips. The Iwata HP-B has a .2mm tip that's nice for detail work and fine shading. If you want one brush that's a jack of all trades, look for one with a .3 or .35mm tip like the Iwata Eclipse or equivalent.

I have the Eclips Hp CS .35 and the revolution CR .5
I like the CR
I do not even use the CS anymore
I like that the needle is more protected on the cs but it does not clean out as fast as the cr and the cr sprays a smaller pattern spray
I have some bager garage sales coming someday to try.

Ok.. Im sorry.. Im having a rough day!!! Have to have a little fun. I use a Iwata HP-BSC or BCS.. I dont know all the models by heart.. its has a .50mm tip.. I like the bottle feeds.. I have never used gravity and everyone says I should but I like to switch out the paint fast! Seems like it would take a long time to clean out the gun.. I might be wrong. Im wrong alot!! but I have got use to using the bottles rather than gravity.. it does suck though because those bottle fall out alot!! TICKS ME OFF when that happens!

YEAP!!! Hell Tigger uses a Cheap 40 buck airgun!!! And his paint jobs are AMAZING!!! You dont need expensive guns!! Some guy on here uses just spray cans.. I dont remember who off the top of my head.. I do have a gun with .35.. but I would rather use my .50mm guns.. I got 5 of them.. paint comes out better in that one.. and I like to let it fly everywhere.. you can hide mistakes with you splash paint all over the crank!!! If you screw up just go with it!! Tell them you ment to do that!! Make crap up..

And Mikey will probably get a better paint job with his straw than you have ever done . Just kiddin', someone had to say that and it might as well be me .
