I struggled for ages with a Neo from Amazon trying to paint fine detail on miniatures. I tried multiple paint brands, thinners and consistencies to no avail. The Neo would clog up almost instantly causing stuttering and splattering. I was worried it was me and not the airbrush. The Eclipse is a vast improvement over the Neo. In my first session I had it painting hairline detail with thinned acrylics and no nasty tip dry or clogging issues. I spent ages searching for an Iwata in my local stores and online but no one carried them or they were incredibly overpriced. After finding Maple Airbrush Supplies I called and spoke with Elyssa who was friendly, knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. Ordered my Eclipse on Monday and had it in Ontario on Wednesday!
Thank you Elyssa and Donna!
I ordered two airbrushes from Maple after being left hanging in limbo for a month from a US vendor that never bothered to inform me of a back-order! Maple’s service was great- and I’m enjoying my two new airbrushes and my delicious maple sweets! Thanks guys!
After struggling with two cheaper airbrushes while I learned the hobby, I finally decided enough was enough and purchased the Iwata Eclipse. The price and speedy delivery from Maple were great, and the product itself is outstanding. I should have started on a quality airbrush like this one instead of wasting my time with the Neo and an even more bargain basement brush first.
