    Ok so I have decided I quite like Airbrushing and currently use a Timbertech AB and also have a cheaper AB but I know I am going to want to buy a posher AB before too long, so is there a half decent AB around the £100 mark that will give Me good results on synthetic paper/art papers/photo paper. I will mainly be painting wildlife type subjects and movie type pics. I currently have some craetex paints, com-art paints and liquitex acrylic inks but will probably buy others at some point!
    I know opinions vary but some ideas will help :)

    but I am just assuming, I don't have any experience with Procon Boy :whistling:

    Eclipse is more money

    I do wonder what others will say. They know those airbrushes. I wonder if I was close enough :D

    I recently bought the 0.3 276 sidefeed and it is a real good allround airbrush I converted to a 0.2 nozzle but that was just because it could be done
    the quality is the same as you expect from a Iwata airbrush I can highly recommend this brand airbrush

    there is also this brush
    Mr Procon Boy FWA Platinum Airbrush (PS-270)

    but I don't have a clue what is a real difference between this one PS-270 or PS -289 V2. It's the same price for both of them...

    I believe the difference between the 270 and 289 is the 270 has a 0.2mm needle/nozzle while the 289 is 0.3mm.
