Hi all, new member here from Indiana in the U.S.A. Found the forum surfing youtube and finding the AirbrushTutor vids. While not a complete newbie to airbrushing, my experience is limited to using an airbrush for painting scale model planes. Since seeing the AirbrushTutor vids, I have developed a desire to learn the artistic side of airbrushing and have been doing quite a bit of practicing with the different strokes and blends and such.

I have been using an Iwata Neo, and an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS. The Eclipse has given me trouble from the start, and went south last night so its likely going back to Iwata. (Going to make a post on that in the help section) The Neo is great and has actually outshined the Eclipse in everyway.

Anyway...I have a coupole other airbrushes ordered, a Badger Krome and a Badger Sotar 20/20. The Sotar I got for the unbelivable price of $47.76 including shipping from Amazon. $71.00 with an additional $30 off for signing up for an Amazon card...I couldnt resist!

Anyway...glad to have found the forum and looking foward to the learning experience!

Welcome to the forum contenderfan. I may have to check into the Neo myself. The Eclipse works well for me, way better than the Paasche VL I struggled with... There is a lot of talent in this forum and it is a great place learn and ask questions.

I really cant complain about the Neo at all, I got it from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon. I was really impressed with the wat it performed, so I got an Eclipse HP-CS from Hobby Lobby also with a 40% off coupon. The Eclipse has been nothing but trouble and now will not spray below 20 psi at all. I have posted it in the Troubleshooting section..

Welcome from Holland.

I just got a Sotar from Amazon last week and I love it, however both needles came out of the box with slight bends in the very tip. So if you have any trouble with the spray, don't think it's faulty, get out the magnifying glass and check the tips. I polished both of mine which took out the bends and it sprays excellent. Hopefully you won't have the same problem.
