They’re generally easy to work with and replacement parts won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Iwata Revolution HP-BR

Features and Review

  1. Great Iwata quality with low price
  2. Great for beginners – Though the HP-BR isn’t as forgiving about paint consistency as the HP-CR or Eclipse airbrushes it’ll still get the job done.
  3. The smaller cup is nice for people with large, meaty, sausage-like fingers. Your finger can run into the back of larger cups.
  4. The HP-BR is perfect for makeup artists and hobbyists as well as Auto graphics.
  5. Ergonomic Handle
  6. Teflon Needle Packing

Common Problems

  • Bent needles – you can try repairing the needle yourself.
  • Can’t change tip sizes
    Like the HP-AR the .3mm tip setup is the only one that will work on the HP-BR.  That’s because of a silly ring the factory put in just behind the color cup.  It looks like it’s only purpose is to prevent the .5mm needle from passing through.
