Why Should You Consider Buying From The BARTSHARP Airbrush® Range?
BARTSHARP Airbrush® 181
The BARTSHARP Airbrush® 181 is a pen style dual action, gravity side feed airbrush.
Dual action: push down, on the trigger for air, and pull back, on the trigger, for paint.
The 181 airbrush is fitted with a 0.2mm needle and nozzle set and is the best choice for creating fine detail work. It is most commonly used by those wishing to create detailed artistic work, scale models, wargaming figures, diorama etc.
A 0.3mm needle and nozzle set can also be fitted for use when creating less detailed work, alternatively a 0.5mm needle and nozzle set can be used for the laying down of washes and top/base coats.
The paint cup is push fitted into the airbrush body and can be fitted to either the left or right hand side. It has a 13cc paint capacity with a push fit lid.
A needle adjust screw is fitted to the rear handle which allows the user to set how far the airbrush needle is able to move back. This feature allows lines of the same thickness to be created repeatedly (as long as the airbrush tip remains at the same distance from the project surface) and is invaluable for creating shadow lines in scale model builds.
Another fantastic feature is the micro air control valve situated under the front of the airbrush which gives fingertip control over the volume of air passing to the airbrush needle and nozzle. This allows for the creation of paint effects such as stippling and weathering.
BARTSHARP Airbrush®, unlike many other airbrush sellers, stocks a huge range of spares and accessories.
The BARTSHARP Airbrush® has a 1/8BSP male air inlet.
1/8 is approximately 9.35mm diameter and BSP stands for British Standard Pipe (type and pitch of thread). BSP is the most common thread type used in airbrushing.
