Iwata Revolution HP CR

Features and Review

  1. Great for beginners – The HP-CR is about as close as you can come to my favorite airbrush, the Eclipse CS, without actually being the Eclipse CS.
  2. There are three differences between the CR and the CS.
    1. The Eclipse CS cleans up easier because it has a self-centering nozzle
    2. The Revolution CR comes standard with a bigger nozzle.  For beginners that’s a good thing
    3. The HP-CR is less expensive than the CS
  3. Teflon Needle Packing
  4. Ergonomic Handle
