    nannu, i bought a Veda airbrush at a much lower cost. Unfortunately, these airbrushes are good for only one year. I am experiencing problems with mine especially when it comes to lacquer. The flow gets interrupted during spraying.

    Manolo, remember the Maltese saying , 'L-IRHIS GHALI!' Evil or Very Mad

    Personally I consider good branded brushes for the delicate jobs, probably these cheap brushes are good to use for base coating and basic work, in the long run they will loose their fine tunings ... the market for these basic equipment is the beauty parlour, airbrushes are being used for artificial tanning, nail art and cosmetics ... they will not consider expensive equipment for basic jobs hux!

    Agree Manolo and Ivan...I also have a badger which has been with me for the last 30 years !...oh yes I refurbish it every other year with new parts and it always gave me an excellent service...but this one will do as well for non so much delicate airbrushing and I will not use it that much but it will be handy Smile..

    That one has a lot of o-rings that will deteriorate with enamels. It's not that bad however. I airbrushed this with one of them in 1/72nd:



    Ok, the lines can be finer, but it's not an Iwata!
