A Neo CN gravity fed, double action airbrush.
The Neo for Iwata CN gravity feed airbrush is ideal for working on small to medium sized areas with small amounts of paint. Gravity feed airbrushes perform well at lower air pressures, which helps create greater detail.
The interchangeable gravity feed cups offer paint capacity options. The larger size offers easy in-cup paint mixing. The medium size makes it easy to see over and good to view the working surface. The no-cup option is great for quick touch-ups when only a tiny amount of paint is needed.
The Neo Series airbrushes are much better quality than the cheap copies of Iwata airbrushes that are available on the market, and are suitable for beginners to professionals for all applications.
The Neo for Iwata CN gravity feed airbrush features:
A 0.35mm needle and nozzle combination for finer detail spraying and medium sized spray patterns
Interchangeable large 9ml (1/3oz) and medium 1.8ml (1/16oz) cups designed with a funnel shape, which makes for easy clean up and more efficient paint flow. (Both cups are included with airbrush).
Airbrush will hold 0.9ml (1/32oz) without a cup attached
Fine detail to 1″ (0.3mm to 25mm) spray pattern with the one size nozzle
Air Pressure: Recommended operation is between 5 and 35 psi. Ideal for use with smaller air compressors.
Both airbrush and compressor come with warranties from the UK importer for manufacturing defects (although please note that this does not cover parts considered to be consumable – needles, nozzles, seals etc); 5 years for the airbrush, and 1 year for the compressor.
