Which make of Airbrush to choose??

I know this will put the cat among the pigeons but here goes. I now have a Badger 200/Revell Profi/ and a cheap catalogue airbrush. The Revell needs spares that I just cannot obtain here as I posted in the general discussion. Now I fancy buying a new brush but PAASCHEseem to have sewn up the Polish market,lots of choice,readily obtainable spares,etc.. So guys.........which of their Double or Singles would you recommend.....Or is it just horses for courses. As I cannot get a reply from Revell Germany does Revell U.S have an E.Mail address I could try or will it have to be snail-mail

I've had a Paasche H (single action) for about 30 years, and it hasn't given me any unusual trouble. I've had to replace the needle and color cup, but that was my fault. I got the finest needle, and am able to paint some very fine lines with it. In addition, cleanup is really easy using some pipe cleaners and thinner. Several years ago, my brother gave me a VL (double action). Again, a very nice brush that is all I need for modeling. There are some posters who will tell you that the Paasche's handles are too big, or that they don't balance well. That may very well be, but I've noticed no significant problems with either. It's all personal preference, anyway. You won't go wrong with either the Paasche H or VL.

I am a big fan of Badger airbrushes. I've had a 150 for over 12 years with very little trouble from it and have had a Badger 360 for almost 2 years now and just love that piece of equipment.
