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.

Great Badger Air Brush service

Four years ago (man, I cannot believe that it was that long ago) I got a new Badger Velocity airbrush to go along with my Badger 150.  I enjoy using it as much as I enjoy the 150, perhaps even more.

Badger offers a great service that I have taken advantage of before.  They will refurbish or recondition your Badger airbrush for free.  You only pay to ship it to them and pay a nominal fee to have them mail it back.  I mention this because I’ve just shipped both brushes off to them again.  If you have a Badger airbrush, I encourage you to take advantage of this service.
