CM-C Plus

I recently purchased a CM-C Plus as well as the 0.18 needle / head option. I absolutely love it. Elyssa helped me with all the tech questions I had, and was very informative and professional, ... as always. Many thanks Maple for what you do.

Iwata Airbrush Hobbyists
Canada's premier Iwata Gold Crown dealer!!

I ordered my 5th Iwata CMC +2, this time from Maple Airbrush in Canada vs a US based dealer.What can be said about the Custom Micron models that hasn't already been said? For precision paint application with total control, they are in a class by themselves. Available in several versions including gravity feed, side feed, and the all new Takumi side feed version, with either .18 or .23 size needle/nozzle combo, the Custom Micron series can handle anything the discerning artist or hobbyist can put it thru, from the finest hairline in a photo realistic piece, to the most intricate details on the finest scale model or figure. The trigger is legendary for its silky smooth action, and the spray pattern gives such confidence building control, the user will surely grow in skill and ability using this superb airbrush. Pricey but worth every single penny and then some. Any Iwata airbrush is a great investment, but the Custom Micron is one of the greatest investments the artist/hobbyist can make in their lifetime. It's legend status is well earned. Order yours today at Maple Airbrush!!!

Best airbrush I’ve ever used!!

I have an Iwata HP-CS which is a great workhorse and does most everything a person needs, but to do detailed areas the Iwata Micron is unbelievable! Very smooth for detailing with no worries as there is so many adjustments for air and liquid to do that perfect job!
Great company with quick shipping, will be ordering more supplies as well as a spare needle and head assembly shortly.
