Heya, Folks,

I'm looking at two Tamiya Super Fine airbrushes for fine line spraying: the Tamiya Spraywork HG Super Fine airbrush and the Tamiya Spraywork Airbrush III.

Now I've owned a Tamiya HG Trigger type airbrush an loved it, also a Pasche VL and Iwata BCS Eclipse, so I am familiar with double action as well as the Tamiya/Iwata handling, etc.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a comparison review of both of the Tamiya fine-line airbrushes.

Has anyone used either or both of the Tamiya brushes, and if so, do you have any pros or cons for one over the other...?

Many thanks, folks!!

With Regards and Aloha,

Johnny B.

Johnny,
I don't have both of these brushes, but I've had the HG Superfine for several years. It is a lovely airbrush with fit, finish tip size and performance that is directly comparable to the Iwata HP-B. If you are looking for detail oriented brush, it will do a great job. Coast Airbrush also carries any parts you might need for it.

Hope this helps a little...

Heya, Paul,

Thanks for the feedback! Never really thought about purchasing a "fine line" airbrush until now....

Awesome!

And I know Coast Airbrush very well --- great bunch of people!

Thanks again, Paul --- have a good one!

With Regards and Aloha,
