    Hi, i think, as soon as possible i want to buy a second airbrush.

    I see online the iwata eclipse, and the paasche talon tg3 set.

    The talon have nozzle 0.25, 0.38 and 0.66.

    Any advice about this two airbrush?

    You won't make a bad decision buying an eclipse, they are solid, dependable and easy to work with and clean. I have a 0.38 (standard) nozzle and a 0.5mm nozzle as well that I can put in if I need bigger spray.

    Standard is 0.35 according to website and 0.3 according to printed media. So who knows.

    If you get the side feed Eclipse, HP-SBS, you can get extra Aztek cups and have quick colour changes when painting your lures.

    Yes you can get good detail but it takes practice. This was done with the eclipse... business card size.

    One more question, with little bit more budget, what about iwata hi-line hp-ch h4100???
    Wasted money and go for the eclipse, or is better than the eclipse?

    the hiline is more expensive than the eclipse, at your level I'd suggest staying with the Eclipse CS. Almost bullet proof.

    Yes, you have lots of photos to show what has been happening as proof. I think a refund or replacement is justified.
