1930s Paasche Model MLS. This airbrush was the pre-cursor to the Paasche VL series airbrush. The patent year on the body is 1928. This airbrush is unusual in that it has an adjustable collar that pushes the trigger back — more or less making it double as a single-action airbrush.
This is my mid-1920's Paasche AB Turbo Model "B". It has a bakelite handle and a fixed (non-adjustable) spoon (color cup). The Model "B" was designed to work on horizontal surfaces… whereas the Model "A" was designed to work on vertical surfaces. This brush was found in a box of electronics at a street sale in New York and sold on eBay — where I won it. It has been cleaned and re-calibrated and is now a functioning airbrush! #airbrush #Paasche #vintage
1960s Thayer and Chandler Model B Airbrush. I'm basing the date upon the clamshell case… which is identical to Model A airbrushes from that time period. This model was MIB and never used! It will be now, though! Still a great deal for a little over $20.00!
