This Iwata Power Jet Lite and Eclipse CS Airbrush Bundle is a great value way to get started with a good quality airbrush and compressor. Iwata are acknowledged as a market leader for quality airbrush equipment, and this kit represents a good mid-range setup if you airbrush for longer periods of time than the duty cycle for lower-end compressors allows. It is ideal both for general work (priming, base-coating, varnishing etc) and detail work. The bundle consists of;
An Iwata Power Jet Lite compressor
Iwata Studio Series compressors are powerful, compact and quiet. With oil-less piston motors, they are low maintenance and affordably priced. The Iwata Studio Series are the perfect companion to any of the Iwata airbrushes.
The Power Jet Lite is twice as powerful as a Sprint Jet, so you can run two fine airbrushes or one high-flow airbrush or a small spray gun. (a multiple-outlet manifold is additionally required to connect two airbrushes).
The Smart Technology automatically turns the compressor on when you press your airbrush trigger, providing instant air at the pressure you have set it, and turns the compressor off again when the airbrush is not in use. The Power Jet Lite has a metal protective case with integral regulator and pressure gauge.

An Iwata Eclipse CS Gravity Fed AirbrushM
The Iwata Eclipse range of airbrushes are the ultimate in versatility, reliability and performance. Iwata designed these airbrushes as multi-purpose, high paint flow, and high detail to cover a wide range of uses. They have exceeded their expectations as being a general purpose airbrush and have established a new standard for excellence where precise control of spray is required, as well as applying moderate to large amounts of spray to areas with heavier paints such as enamels, oils and acrylics. The Eclipse Series have the most versatile spray pattern in the range of Iwata airbrushes.
The drop in hardened stainless steel nozzles are self centering for perfect alignment and quick and easy assembly. This makes the Eclipse airbrushes the easiest to clean and maintain.
The Eclipse Series now have PTFE solvent-proof needle packing!
The Eclipse CS is excellent for these applications:
