BARTSHARP Airbrush® 186


The BARTSHARP Airbrush 186 is a pen style dual action, gravity top feed airbrush.

Dual action: push down, on the trigger for air, and pull back, on the trigger, for paint.


The BARTSHARP Airbrush® 186 incorporates a brand new nozzle and nozzle cap design.

The nozzles are of a larger physical size whilst retaining the same inner dimensions (0.2mm, 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.8mm)

186 airbrush dual action airbrush gravity feed airbrush

These new nozzles are a complete change from the standard design making nozzle change and airbrush cleaning a breeze as they simply push into the airbrush body cap and are held in place by screwing the nozzle cap down.

The new design nozzles also have a Teflon bush which prevents paint from escaping from behind the nozzle and is also impervious to highly aggressive paints.

No more fiddling with a super small nozzle and nozzle spanner.

Our customers have provided exceptionally good feedback on this new design as it has improved paint flow and greatly reduced paint blockages.


The BARTSHARP Airbrush 186 is fitted with a quality 0.3mm needle, nozzle and nozzle cap.
This set up is for general purpose spraying and will allow you to create a line spray width up from 0.3mm to approximately 28mm.

It can also be fitted with a 0.2mm needle/nozzle set, for creation of finer lines and greater detail, or 0.5mm needle/nozzle set when less detail may be required.
Alternatively it can also be fitted with a 0.8mm needle/nozzle set which is ideally suited to those wishing to spray slightly thicker mediums, such as with cake decoration or specialist paints or lacquers.

This larger size set up optimises a smoother paint flow and will help to prevent clogging and splatter associated with the use of smaller needles and nozzles.


The BARTSHARP Airbrush 186 comes with three fully interchangeable cups:

2cc, 5cc (with push fit lid) and 13cc (with push fit lid)

The air inlet is 1/8BSP which is the most regularly used size for airbrushes and air hoses alike.

(BSP stands for British Standard Pipe and describes the thread pitch, whilst 1/8 is equal to 9.35mm (approx)


The 186 Airbrush is also fitted with a:

MAC Valve for fingertip air control of air flow which enables you to create special paint effects.

Needle adjust screw. This is situated on the rear handle and can adjusted to preset how far the needle can be pulled back. This means that lines, of the same thickness, can be created many times.


Also included in the kit is: spare needle / nozzle sets (0.5mm and 0.8mm), 1.8m air hose, airbrush quick release, mini in line airbrush filter and an air hose adaptor (1/4BSP female to 1/8BSP male)

This complete airbrush kit contains everything that you will need to start airbrushing.

Miniature Models / Wargaming

Cake Decoration

Custom Automotive Motorcycle Graphics / Helmet / Tank Artwork

T-Shirt / Textiles / Nails & Cosmetics / Make-up Application

RC Planes / Cars /Helicopters

Painting of Fishing Lures


Cake Colourings, Watercolours, Acrylics, Inks & Dyes

*Automotive Urethanes, Lacquers, Enamels & Edible Food Dyes

(*Automotive Thinners and other similar paints may affect the small o rings - replacement o rings are readily available in our store. Other sellers may not highlight this point.

The only way to avoid this situation is to purchase an airbrush designed for use with custom automotive paints, however, these generally cost in excess of £180. Replacement o ring sets cost £3.99 including UK postage)

Your BARTSHARP Airbrush 186 is protected by our 30 day no quibble return policy and a 1 Year Warranty*

*This does not include the needle, and nozzles as these are expected to wear during use.

    Just finishing my very first armour kit using the bartsharp 186! For the first time I’ve got an airbrush I can truly trust!!!

  3. AlexModeling

    I have 2 Bartsharp Airbrushes, and the 186 is my favorite!
    I think i said it all!

    For the money this airbrush is unbeatable, in fact it actually contends with airbrushes of a much higher price. I purchased 5 in March for my school holiday Art Clubs for 8 to 12 year old’s. I am now after a couple more for the same reason. I have actually started using it more than my Iwata HP-CH when modelling or painting. It has quickly become my go to airbrush. The three colour cups coupled with the 3 different sized needles and heads make this a very versatile airbrush. To me it is worth more than the money. I have written this review after having used it myself and having had my students use them. I am not one for leaving feed back early, I like to put things to the test.

  5. John Mason

    I am very pleased with my 186 purchase, excellent value. The airbrush does a 1st class job. I found Alison at Bartsharp very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend the186 and the company to anyone thinking of purchasing an airbrush, plus they have all the parts and accessories.
