Response to Let's talk about Iwata Airbrushes.
Aztec A470, a Badger Crescendo 175, and an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS.
I like the Aztec and the Badger both fine, and use them, but I LOVE my Iwata. The HP-CS is a large cup gravity feed double action brush. I can get lines pencil thin with enamels with no effort at all. The brush is an amazing tool. It has two shortcomings: It doesn't really spray acrylics well, (Nozzle is too fine) and the needle is very fragile. I keep an extra on hand at all times as I bent one really early on.
I use enamels almost exclusively, for the acrylics I stick with the Aztec or the Badger with a medium needle/nozzle setup. I think you can get other models in the Eclipse and Revolution lines that are aimed more at acrylics, they have larger diameter needle/nozzle setups.
