What is the best Iwata to get?

3 posts in this topic

What is the best Iwata to get for all around? I have a Paasche that I can base coat with. I need something more for detail work. I use Cretex paints. Which is better gravity feed or siphon feed? I am gettting ready to purchase one this week. I have heard pros and cons on both.

Thanks for the help.

I have a Custom Micron SB. It is without a doubt the best airbrush for detail that I have seen and I have used many. It is a gravity feed with a side cup so you can see over the top of the brush easily. Simple to clean and adjust. Here is a site where you can see all the different ones at an expensive but good price for these brushes.

If you're going to spend this much money and buy one of the Microns, you'll probably want to buy the C. Going with a needle under .20 can mean problems with paint pick up unless it is properly diluted.

Of course, this is only what I've heard :) ... as I've never spent this kind of money on an airbrush. Doesn't mean I won't one day.

I have an Eclipse BCS, which is a nice gun, but I'd doubt that it is much better for detail than your Paasche.
