I now officially have my 2nd airbrush. The 1st one I got was a Paashe, now yeah its american made but its really around a $100 airbrush it sprays massive overspray which does for major clean up after words.
So in the last year I've spent hours or even days scouring the Iwata brochure for the proper brush. For almost 7 months I wanted the HP-BC Plus which is good and recommended and around $170. However in October I changed my mind and decided on the CMC plus. Its a $400 airbrush but perfect for fine line detail. Now the info on this talks about "complete atomization" of the paint. what does this mean? Well from what I can tell the paint is basically bonded to the object painted!
With the Paashe you simply take a Qtip and denatured alcohol and swab the overspray to remove it.
Well with the CMC plus (1) there is 1/10th of the overspray and thats because I am not adjusted to the fineline use of this and (2) What overspray there is MUST be repainted as once the paint dries its bonded to the figure and does not come off. That also explains why the paint is not rubbing of the joints as much also.
So in the long run is it worth shelling out tons of money for a top of the line Japanese airbrush the answer is yes! Just becareful as there are a ton of tiny parts when cleaning.
