BorderB. the biggest difference I can see is the plus will come with a .2mm and the 4500 will come with the .35mm, I can't speak for everybody but my experience has been with createx auto air and a .35 needle and I have had problems with the pearls and the iridescents I cant imagine trying them with a .2mm and any type of hobby paint, if you were to get the 4500 you would have the ability to go up to a .5 if needed for the bigger pigments in the hobby type paint....just my .02:)

I've used Iwata's to paint models ( the plastic kind:wink: ) for years. The Eclipse is great for all around use, easy to shoot enamels/laquers/acrylics when properly thinned.
The HP series can be finicky when using some water-based paints.
My advice: get the Eclipse for now, buy the HP-C when funds permit.

Thanks guys for the all the advise you guys have given me. I think for now I am gonna stick to the Eclipse gravity feed. I'm gonna try to post my latest ( well...only 2nd) bait to date in the gallery. Thanks again.
