Seriously, it does look like a Centuri Black Widow rain full force into the tail end of a Centuri X-24 Bug!


My thought too. i'm wondering whether the 'Bug' portion can be made to return on a glide.

Highly unlikely. The plastic component is quite heavy.

I was so motivated to start airbrushing after seeing James Duffy’s video that I ordered a Paasche H single action airbrush. James mentioned in the video that he never really got comfortable with a dual action. Me neither. I have a Paasche VL, but will save it to use when I feel the urge to experiment. I have an old Binks Wren single action I bought in the 70s, but it seems best suited to spraying large areas, and I may use it just for that.

I found the Paasche H at Amazon for $65, and the model I ordered includes a red anodized handle instead of the standard plastic handle. Not a big deal, but a nice touch. And I didn’t pay any more than the standard model. We must have almost everything in stock at Colorado Amazon warehouses. I ordered it Thursday, and it was on my porch the next day, before noon!
