Iwata WS400 Supernova- Can someone post a pic of the box. Which Ebay sellers and what tip size?


New Member
Looking to get a WS400 Supernova Evo for 2k clear.

I haven't found any info on possible fakes out there. So I was wondering if someone could post a picture of the authentic factory Box they come in, because I see on Ebay that different sellers are selling the same gun with different box size and graphics.

There is an Ebay seller called "airbrushpaintworld" selling these for under $450, and he/she is out of Lafayette Indiana.

There is also a seller out of Florida called "Chroma-Air" for $575. Different box than the above seller.

I know there is that seller from Italy and the one from Japan, who folks here have said are legit but I only have 1 month of school left before I graduate , so can't wait the 2+ weeks for the thing to get here from overseas.

What tip should I choose for 2K clear , 1.3mm , 1.4mm or something else? We spray Nason and Cromax Urethane Clears at Tech College.
Is there a choice in Tip pattern, like how Sata has the O pattern and I pattern?

Thanks for the advice.

Links would be helpful.
Apologies. Wasn't sure if it was ok to link

Seller from Florida. Cubish box

Seller from Indiana. Rectangular shallow height box

Oh and one more thing: I am in South East Wisconsin, so it is cold outside, but the school is heated and so is the paint booth, so temps don't matter.

I've been spraying SPI clear quite a bit with a 1.3 Supernova, and it will spray those thinner clears you are using just fine. Just note that it is a rather finicky gun as far as setup and technique, and I don't know if I would recommend it to a beginner. The LPH 400 is a little more forgiving, The Tekna Pro Lite sprays anything well, and would probably be my suggestion for a beginner, but I haven't had a new Sata since the 2000 HVLP, which doesn't spray clear well, but is an excellent base gun, especially on difficult metallics. I still use it today for metallics and pearls, but usually use a lph400 1.4 for solids. The pro lite with the 1.3, 1.4, TE20 and HV30 combination is very versatile, and gives you lots of options to experiment with. I think a 1.3 with a TE20 air cap will spray those clears you're using very well.
bellaria gun with no cup is 200 on Amazon, the full box ones range from 629-675. one with 3M cup adapter and starter kit for 619.

I would suggest shopping a little more and remove any question of what you are getting on ebay or waiting a month for shipping.
