    DescriptionA convincing paint finish is essential for any model, be it military or civilian, aircraft, vehicles, figures or even background items such as terrain or buildings - and good airbrushing and finishing techniques can be the key to creating a superior model. Over the last few years there have been huge strides made in the development of airbrushes, paints and thinners, and consequently, this new book will provide up-to-date practical information and illustrated techniques to take full advantage of these new technologies. Brett Green details the prerequisites of airbrushing, including the different types of spray equipment and air sources available, offering advice on appropriate thinners, paint ratios and air pressures to ensure the most appropriate paint coverage across a range of different airbrushing applications. He then examines various airbrushing techniques across a wide range of models. Ten step-by-step, illustrated case studies ranging from heavily weathered military aircraft to pristine, high gloss motor vehicles, science fiction models, fantasy figures, groundwork and buildings will complete this in-depth guide to getting the best results on your models.

Ten step-by-step, illustrated case studies, ranging from heavily weathered military aircraft to pristine, high-gloss motor vehicles, science-fiction models, fantasy figures, groundwork, and buildings, complete this in-depth guide to getting the best results on your models." -"Model Aviation" (January 2009) "I can visualize a modeler at the work bench, this book protected in a plastic baggie sitting next to the model as the reader works to practice the skills discussed in the book, and using the images as the "passing standard" for their work. The book is very well written, with excellent images to illustrate the text. The publication addresses not only the basic skills and techniques that a beginner must learn but also provides a tutorial for the more advanced techniques that a more experienced modeler wishes to tackle. The book is much more than a simple "ho
