    I am looking to purchase my first airbrush. I have two velociraptors that need painting, so I finally have an excuse to buy one. I think I have narrowed it down to these three and would appreciate any input and/or advice or other suggestions! Thanks

    IWATA REVOLUTION

    IWATA ECLIPSE CS

    IWATA ECLIPSE BCS

    I am slightly leaning towards one of the Eclipse models because it says it can do a hairline, whereas the Revolution can do I think 1/32". I also really don't know the difference between the two Eclipse models? However, I would love to hear your advice!

    The Eclipse CS is gravity feed, the BCS is bottle feed. Gravity feed is best for fine detail work because it can spray with much lower air pressure. Of those three I'd recommend the Eclipse CS for the gravity feed and fine line ability.

    I hear Casey Love is releasing a signature airbrush. Could be worth a look...

    The Eclipse HP-CS has been my number one work horse for about 6 years now. Nothing even touches Iwata's quality IMO.
