Iwata Eclipse HP-BS - Airbrush Guru

Iwata Eclipse HP-BS

Review and Opinions:

  • The Eclipse BS is a great tool for general spraying.  It does everything good.
  • On the flip side it doesn’t do anything spectacularly well.
  • It’s a workhorse airbrush. It’s perfect for doing most of your spraying, gross detail work, and general backgrounds.
  • It’s really hard to go wrong with an Eclipse.
  • Even though the Eclipse CS is my all-time favorite airbrush, the Eclipse BS comes in a close second.The difference is the smaller cup.  The cup also doesn’t come with a cap.  Since I can get a wild when I spray I know I need that cap.  On the other hand I do have big hands.  Bumping into the back of the cup on the Eclips CS does get annoying when I think about it.
