I went ahead and purchased the full set due to the sheer versatility of what it can do. I have been using a Paasche H for years with my hobbies and has served me well. The main reason I decided to get this brush was for the sake of doing complex camo patterns and fine detail work which, unfortunately the H falls flat. I had been using a Badger double action in the past for that purpose, but found it to be something of a pain to clean. So far this has addressed many of the issues I didn't like about the other brushes, and for a double action is surprisingly easy to work with and clean.
BUT... this brush does have a couple of points that I really hope Paasche will address at some future point. First off there was some casting flash in the main body of the brush that would cause the trigger to stick a little bit on the return. It only took me a couple of minutes with a micro-file and some 400 wet sanding grit to clean it up, so no big deal. Still, I would think that a company with such a history like Paasche would take the time to exercise a little better QC in that regard. Apparently this is not an uncommon problem either.
The other issue I have with it is that quite honestly the instructions that came with this airbrush really stink. Come on now... even if it costs a couple of dollars more, couldn't Paasche at least take the time to put together a more professional looking set of instructions and diagrams with this brush, including basic directions on how to take it apart? All I can say is thank goodness for YouTube in that regard. Also as there are no marks, tubes, or anything else readily identifying the different needles included in this package, again this is something that a clear diagram would have helped immensely.
However, once I got past the initial cleanup and figuring out what goes where, I can say that thus far I have been extremely pleased with the results. For someone who may have a broad range of uses for their brush, this package is definitely the way to go. Switching out one size needle/head combo for another is pretty painless. However for someone with a more focused purpose, it may suit them better to get just the basic airbrush itself without all the accessories as it is considerably less expensive. As I mentioned in the beginning, cleanup is really pretty easy with this brush as well... not quite as easy as the H which is really is about as simple as they come, but still relatively painless all things considered.
Verdict: Highly recommended.
The airbrush arrived with a bent needle, not slightly warped, bent. Paasche customer service gladly sent me a new one at no charge and it arrived quickly. Next, blow-back (air back through the cup) all the time. Talked with customer service again and were very pleasant and told me to make sure the tip and aircap were tight, keep in mind we're dealing with very small parts and threads. The medium and large needles, tips and caps all worked fine, but the fine setup was issue after issue. Paasche sent another fine needle, tip and cap that was tested before sending. Now, the airbrush is back at Paasche as the medium tip broke off in the airbrush (broke in middle of the threads). I know Paasche will make it right, but something just seems off here.
Not to put all the blame on Paasche, I'm a novice and learning as I go. I have found you MUST KNOW HOW TO THIN YOUR PAINT! Don't expect to buy an airbrush and some paint and have the paint flow exceptionally well through the airbrush. Paint is not paint and all the product lines out there are different. Acrylic, enamel, lacquer, candy, etc, etc, and you can't layer acrylic over/under enamel or enamel under/over lacquer, etc, etc, unless you know exactly what to do. Understand what each type of paint is, what its used for and if/how you can layer them. Trust me, I have a collection of paint due to not learning before leaping. Watch YouTube videos, there are numerous videos on paint types, how to thin them, how to get your correct air pressure for the paint viscosity and how/if you can layer them. In the end I'm finding my general mixing ratio, depending on paint type, is somewhere between 2 and 3 parts paint to one part reducer. This makes a very thin paint, but problems have been greatly reduced. Correctly flowing paint also greatly reduces cleaning time.
While I'm waiting for my Paasche airbrush to come back I bought another to see how another brand works. The one I bought is another brand and doesn't have all the accessories this one came with, but I am getting better results. Again, some likely due to changing brands, but much do to my knowledge, experience and understand paint. Overall I think this is a great value for the money, Paasche customer service has been nothing but helpful and prompt and I think for learning this is a great way to go, just wish I wasn't having to use Paasche customer service so much.
