There are hundreds of airbruhs options on the market. Some are great, but some come with issues, some are comfortable and predictable, but some require a longer learning curve. We know them well and can admit only a handful of choices that will satisfy most users. Made-in-Japan airbrushes are definitely on this list.
The most common choice would be a 0.3mm nozzle and gravity paint cup combination. Exactly as GSI Creos PS-289 made, and no - you can't go wrong with this airbrush. It is a workhorse, suitable for any level user, from the first timer to a heavily experienced painter. Perfection is machinery, quality of materials it is built from, flawless design - it's all there. And with the price point that this brand offers - it's just a hidden gem. At least it used to be for many years in the USA until we discovered it and decided to bring it to our customers and save them $ on quality artistic tools from Japan. Now its popularity grows every day, along with other models from the GSI Creos brand.
A similar airbrush with a bit more detail-oriented setup is PS-270, which offers all the same features as PS-289 but with a 0.2mm nozzle.
Need even more detail? Well, surely there is a suitable "katana" or the job - part of the micron family, PS-771 custom airbrush with 0.18mm nozzle is the dream tool for photoresist artists and high-grade scale modelers.
Looking for something that sprays heavier and covers larger areas? No problem, PS-290 is here to serve! 0.5mm nozzle with larger gravity cup, it comes standard with traditional for airbrush round pattern air cap, and additional fan spray cap, which turns this airbrush into a miniature spray gun, allowing it to cover a larger surface.
So, if you are looking for an airbrush from Japan, look no further - GSI Creos airbrushes will check all the boxes and then some! And with a price that won't break the bank. Why not give one a try?
