    Dec 13, 2007, 9:41 AM - Opinions on Airbrushes #1

    Hello there fellow Fett fiends and friends! I have read some of the threads on airbrushes and notice that Paasche seems to have a strong following. they also have a high price tag. I did have a Paasche dual-action, internal mix airbrush and never got the hang of it.

    I'm thinking about getting a Central Pneumatic for about $13 + tax. See pic below. Here's a link to it on the web:

    So here are my questions and yes, I know I'm soliciting opinions and they will vary. Opinions, based on experience, are EXACTLY what I'm after.

    Does anyone have any experience with this brand of airbrush?

    How does it compare to Badger and Paasche?

    I will be using an aircompressor in the garage, with a pressure regulator. anything else I need to add to that setup?

    I'll be painting my helmet and armor with an airbrush instead of spray paints, because I want to mix my own Tamiya acrylic colors for my armor. Pre-Pro 2, if that matters.

    Thanks again for the input.

    i am something of an airbrush snob... i wouldn't get a $13 airbrush. i just wouldn't trust the precision / quality of it.

    consider the parts that need to be replaced over time, like then needle. could you get more needles somewhere?

    that looks like a badger anthem. the anthem is a nice brush. mine's been chugging along for years.
