Anyway, it's not what is out of place. Clue: it's in the drawer with the Pro Lites.

Ok, another clue: Look at the branding on the Pro Lites.

Is no-one else playing?

Yep, nailed it. :bighug:

You can see hat the base of the fan control is slightly different too, and the knobs are plate, not alloy. I bought it for fun but it actually works really well for base. Parts look the same but aren't quite compatible with the genuine article.

Your turn.

being we are talking guns, when my boy and i painted my car at his shop last month. and we used the shop painters' guns. they were Iwata LS400 1.2 and WOW what nice guns, what a nice spray pattern. i could not believe how easy they were to use, the job turned out perfect if not better.

LS400 is the Supernova - their top of the range. I want a green one, not to paint with, just to look at. They're so pretty. :happy:

Absolute base model is $800 discount price here, but yes, nice gun.

There was so much hype when the LS400 supernova came out that I bought one, and really like it.
It has a 1.3 tip and also have the clear gun with a 1.4, the parts cost so much that I just bought another gun. Also have the Sata jet 5000 B RP, but the Iwata suits me better. I like the 3M Accuspray for primer, and its so easy to clean.

The Ls400.... I was told it was the way the truth and the light by someone else that shoots aircraft.... So I sacked up and bought one. Simply put, I shoot with it every day and I still don't understand how it's so consistently awesome.
-sure as hell ain't me-
Now I hate shooting with any of my other stuff...
