    "Distributor" wouldn't bring misunderstanding!:)

    I also remember that! I was then impressed how the guy did that with the bottom feed Eclipse.
    BTW, he passed away. Robert Benedict that was.

    Do you have a link? I'm curious to have a glance at that.

    This photo is good reminding about the abilities of the airbrush user. In reality it's better to search for the best airbrusher ever, not the best airbrush ever.

    Yes, the "remote trigger" also seems interesting to me. In fact, I found some video on the internet:laugh:
    Really? Please build at least one, if it works maybe we could reach an agreement. I am very interested in getting the finest airbrush available!!
    I want to airbrush at least 4 letters in one millimeter, even less space.

    you may want to consider picking up a different hobby, as an airbrush is not the best suited tool for what you describe you want to do

    why not?, in fact, the owner of this shop Toshiya Takeshima seems very close to Mr. Takeuky, the CEO company. But the point is that Paul Carbajal and his prototype are related with olympos airbrushes, at least in the head system assembly, if Robbyrockett2 has not wrong, thank you Robbyrockett2.
    True, wrong, fake or right. Obviously internet is like real life.
    right! but today for me, the connection olympos airbrushes - prototype is not fake. Exists and its true.
    yeah! you are right, I'm so fortunate in this aspect. All depends by the final price if the product is finally on the market.;)
    Ok mate, thank you for your suggestion. I only just want to practice with the finest AB and nozzles available asap. This is my goal currently.:thumbsup:

    WOW!!, please, do you have a good photo of this?. 7 letters in one milimeter!!... and how you tunning or mod your AB?, can you help me ?, I use several Iwata airbrushes but now my favorite is HI PERFORMANCE PLUS HP-CP with a rare .18 mm nozzle.
    I WANT it, and get the finest AB available. This is my goal.
    Please, show us the pic with "Squishy" in good resolution. Thank you in advance!.:)

    well, there you have it - "...I only just want to practice with the finest AB and nozzles available asap." The subject brush of this post is not available, and can not be purchased. So, this is not a candidate for your purposes... The rest of this thread has just become a waste of time.

    If it is truly your intention to obtain and practice with the finest airbrush and nozzle available, PogArt has an Iwata/Foxy Studio K33 for sale in the classifieds section - a brush you could buy today, that is very arguably the best available.

    very interesting post Vladimir!! in my case, I expect the beauty of the free hand airbrush pattern with an outstanding detail, no scratches, no stencils. The big pleasure to make all with the AB.
    maybe, you get the answer here https://www.facebook.com/olymposairbrush/posts/1566407480059312
    for me, best if both are good, AB and airbrusher. Here a reference pic in olympos airbrushes FB with a cleary signature in less space that a grain rice 1 x 5 mm. https://www.facebook.com/olymposairbrush/posts/1207874142579316
