In praise of the Badger 150

I confess, I have 4 airbrushes.  1 is a Skybow Iwata clone, 1 is a Tamiya Superfine, 1 is a Badger Velocity and finally I have a Badger 150 that I’ve owned for at least 30 years.  I like all of them, and they all have their uses.  The Velocity is a dream for fine detail spraying.  But, my everyday, go to brush is the 150.  It is a workhorse.  Other airbrushes can be finicky from time to time or prone to clogging.   The 150 is just a great brush.  It sprays very fine, not as fine as the Velocity, but good enough for 90% of spraying in 72nd scale.  It always works,  It is comfortable, or I am just very use to it.  I highly recommend it.
