Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book is well ilustrated and printed on heavy paper. The information provided is very basic, and may appeal to someone who has never used an airbrush. I have been a modeller for many years, but I have never used an air-brush before. Even then, there were only a few new techniques that I found in the book. If you are looking to add to your skills, this is not the book for you. You may want to buy this book to see if you would be interested in air-brushing, and wanted some idea of what it involves. Very little information on how to choose an airbrush, what type of paints to use, how to clean up after use, etc.
Great book. I recommend it as a a complement to "The Basics of Scale Modeling (also from FineScale Modeler Books)" on the more detail topic airbrushing. But please be aware that I only recommend this one or "Painting and Finishing" (from FineScale Modeler Books). I've bought the two and 50% of the contents/projects are shared between both.
Okay this book is one of the better ones I have seen. It does have some real flaws though. For example, it fails to talk about basic things like how to do masking. It does make one reference to it but it is a passing comment on painting a car to prevent paint over spray, but does not say much else. I was told this book would be good for someone just starting to learn but it assumes that you have some basic ideas and such on using an airbrush. IF you do than it is a good book to get. If you are a newbie like me just starting out you might want to wait and get this book later. Over all it is a good book, but just not for anyone just starting out. PS : Even being new to airbrushing this author has some great car techniques.
