I rarely write reviews, however this airbrush and these guys deserve it.
I have 5year+ experience with airbrushes and I use them for painting scale models.
I own a Badger Patriot, Badger 350, Iwata Revolution CR, Harbor Freight Deluxe and a Chinese knockoff.
Out of these the Creos appears to be the most versatile in terms of being able to lay down from 2 inches to hairline width lines. I have tested it with Tamiya, Testors Pactra and with vallejo Model Color paints. I was able to spray 1/4 millimeter CONSISTENT lines with all above paints with careful thinning, except for some Vallejo colors.
-MAC valve (I use it a lot when switching between fine lines and wide pattern)
-good price (for this quality)
Cleaning is fairly easy mostly because the nozzle and the aircap connection is so precise that no paint gets in there so there is little need to clean that area after each session. I tried to polish the needle to further improve performance which resulted in an additional $30 dollar income for Spraygunner as I messed it up and had to order replacements. Conclusion is that there is no reason to mess with the needle as this airbrush is a precision tool by Japanese standards so unlike the Chinese knockoffs there is no reason to tune anything on it. I was able to achieve the fine lines with the replacement needle "as is".
Finally let me say that Spraygunner is one of the best companies I have ever ordered from. The website has a good design with chat support, their shipping speed is practically equal to Am...on`s Prime and they are located in Florida and so am I :) . Options like Paypal and "guest checkout" is always a plus for me.
Keep up the good work guys!
I did literally months of research before deciding what to get for my first airbrush and this is the model I decided on. This was after looking at all available options from all manufacturers and all price points.
I'm still waiting for my compressor to arrive and I haven't even used this yet but I'm confident I made the right choice. I plan to buy the 0.5mm PS-290 as well.
My only complaint was I wish these came with space in the case to hold an extra needle tube, maybe some lube, space for maintenance tools. Or maybe that maintenance tools were included.
I also own a PS 275 (It's the .3mm Trigger Type brush). I use the 270 for detail work. Just scale models, but when I need something that requires a lighter touch I reach for this one. It's not my work horse like my 275, but when things need to be tight you will not be disappointed with this airbrush.
I can't think of another airbrush off of the top of my head that offers atomization this good in a needle this size for super fine lines like this brush does. Especially not in this price range and not one that I have deep enough pockets to own like some of the super high end stuff.
Price to Performance this is gram for gram the best detail brush I have ever owned and as far as I am concerned the atomization that these GSI brushes have can't be beat. Great products, and I always recommend them to friends as well as Spray Gunner. It's awfully nice to be able to order pretty much any part you need for these imported airbrushes and get them in a reasonable amount of time.
This is a very high quality instrument. I was surprised at how well it atomizes. It easily performs as well as or better than other brushes in the same price range. Of course it also goes without saying that the speed and service from Spraygunner is is without compare.
Airbrush works great compared to my passch and badger airbrush. It has a place for my custom airbrushing job and other projects at hand. Wish I could post the artwork for reference but just take my word for it. Worth every penny.
I love this air brush nice quality and excellent performance I will be doing business again Quick shipping fair price
Finally had a chance to use this airbrush and offer an opinion. This is my first time using an airbrush, and I have to say I'm really liking it. I bought this one over the Iwata Eclipse, and so far I'm very happy with it. Still have some learning to do, but it seems to work well and does a nice job. I'm sure as I gain more experience I'll like it even more.
I can’t believe this airbrush isn’t more popular.... as soon as I put some paint in it and pulled the trigger, the atomization of the paint blew my mind! CRISP lines... I can’t stress enough how well this airbrush performs. The quality of the actual brush is also incredible...
The store processed and sent the order within 24 hours - it is very cool! The quality of the aerograph is superb! I’ve been using Harder & Steenbeck Infinity for a long time because I have something to compare with - GSI Creos is not worse, and in some moments even better:
more comfortable grip
more convenient motion control trigger
pressure change is now an irreplaceable feature for me
the quality of the parts and the assembly of the instrument itself is at a height
I definitely recommend this airbrush for any airbrushing complexity and for any skill level.
