so i have the lph80 in 1.2mm love the gun..
i wouldnt mind having a couple of more of them..

thye come with diff needle sizes 0.4mm being the smallest is that real close to air brush or real fine lines for stencil work?

they also have the 0.6 and .8 i can see where they would be good for blending candys maybe on like a ground alumunium panel?

I use mostly my LPH-80s with the 0.8 tip, I use my 0.6 tip for soft fades and tracing the multi striped wavy lines. Can't imagine using a 0.4 tip but then I don't do any traditional air brushing as I lack the skills. I had an airbrush but gave it away a while ago.

Great thing about the custom paint world, there are no rules!!!

I dont claim to be artistic in any way BUT I can tell you I will never part with my Airbrush!
Its a Fantastic tool for making small paint touch ups from assembly or what ever else happens.

ive got a cheap air brush it does okay its the masterbrush brand..
i wouldnt mind having an iwata the hp--cs but have not pulled the trigger on it yet..
i sure see alot of awsome airbrush work with skulls etc i would love to learn to do..

i sure like the lph80 i have it has 1.2 tip in it does good really
i am thinking about getting another with a smaller tip
for painting ovver stencils and fades etc
yes i could buy diff tips an have to change them out etc but that seems like a hastle

You can do fades with any size tip. I'd suggest to get some practice panels, bike tins or whatever and just start shooting.

Don't worry about making mistakes, you will. But take photos, post pics and questions.
