Richpen Airbrushes

The Richpen line of airbrushes is very comparable to the Iwata brand of airbrushes. Both are Japanese made, chrome plated and are precisely machined. In fact, many of the replacement parts are interchangable on comparable models. One big difference is price. The Richpen manufacturer spends very little on advertising thereby reducing overhead and is able to sell their line at lower cost. The models we stock are listed below.

Also available are Phoenix and Gemini Parts and Apollo Series Parts.
