Hello, my name is Anthony D'Agostino and I am a disabled American veteran living in the Philippines. I just missed out on a paasche Talon for sale on Facebook, and I am trying to return to model making after more than thirty years. Back when I had money 2013, I bought a paasche VLST PRO, and since then, it has taken me until now to start building again. A monetary detour ruined my early attempt at returning, as my wife and I started rescuing cats, causing a financial nightmare of food and medical bills. Anyway, we decided that 5 years is long enough, and we are now trying to rehome all our rescues, meaning I can finally start modeling again. The downside, money is still very tight, and I have learned that almost every builder I have talked to online, uses a gravity fed airbrush. The paasche I have, is a bottom siphon feed type, and probably not the best, or easiest for a new modeler.

I have found the Revolution CR online, and it had good reviews. The other airbrush, I haven't found, but it is too rich for my blood anyway. I don't know how much the shipping might be, but if you can check, I may be able to buy that airbrush from you. The other downside, I won't have the money to buy it until October.

Anyway, if you have time, can you find out how much shipping to Cebu City, Philippines will cost? If the price is right, and you still have the airbrush by October, please keep me in mind, as I am very interested.

Thanks in advance,

Anthony D'Agostino

I am interested but excuse my lack of knowledge but what do you mean by a "pre-set" handle?

There is a knob at the rear of the airbrush that sets the distance the needle can be drawn back and so sets the spray pattern to a known and repeatable setting.

Thanks Darren but if the handle is pre-set then does that mean there is no way to control the width or density of the spray you are laying down?

I HAVE Googled this question without success.

OK, let's see if I got this right???

It is what I would call a single action air brush and you "pre-set" the width or density of the spray you wish to lay down. (Not exactly sure just which the pre-set controls.)

I have always worried that at my age I would not have the control I wanted using a double action air brush.

When you pull back on the trigger, you move the needle backwards. The farther back, the wider the spray pattern/ the more paint sprayed. If you wish to make a line or a certain size spray pattern each time you pull the trigger back, you must pull the trigger back to the exact same spot every time. The preset in the handle has an adjustable screw at the end of the handle that allows you to adjust how far back you can pull the trigger. That way you can set your pattern to be exactly the same with each pass of the airbrush. A simple thing that all airbrushes should come with but it is sold as an upgrade. The idea is like an adjustable throttle stop or governor on an engine. If you want to disengage this feature, just back off the screw a couple of turns and then you again have the full range of motion with the trigger. The preset handle gives you more control of the airbrush. It is sold by Iwata for their airbrushes. Google "Iwata preset handle" and look at the images for a photo of the preset handle.

Found it - I got cha!

That could well be the solution for my now less than steady hands.

Ha, I find that the smaller the part and the more dexterity I need, the more my fingers and eyes misbehaive.

Michael I think this is what they refer to preset/no-preset.
Notice one of them has an adjustment which limits the travel of the trigger/needle thus allowing x amount of paint to flow depending on the adjustment.

No Pre-set
