Reviews - What do customers think about Airbrush Painting Techniques (Modelling Manuals)?
Silent compressor Dec 12, 2007
I bought this book for the "building a silent compressor" portion alone. I had no idea where to start, and it was worth the price in itself just for that. I really didn't read the rest of the book. I don't paint models unless they are human ones, and that isn't in the book.
Knoledge is keen. Feb 24, 2006
This book is able to teach new techniques that can help in your hobby's. It is easy to understand but ther are other book's that give more information to help you with your projects.
TRY THIS BOOK FOR PERFECT SKIN COLORS Jan 19, 2006
I am very happy to own this book which explains how to professionally paint human figures and aircraft with airbrush. Very important issue while modelling is using acrylic paint with and without airbrush. In this book you can find satisfactory explanations. If you want to be a professional model painter you must have this book.
Airbrushing Oct 12, 2005
The book has some good basic knowledge about airbrushing. I highly recommend it to any beginners like me that don't know how to use an airbrush.
Scale Modelers View Apr 19, 2000
The book is the regular Osprey size paperback with Beautiful full color Pictures Each chapter is mostly step-by-step pictures with some text.
One chapter shows an airbrush being disassembled. Another is step-by-step on how to build your own silent compressor. One chapter has to do with mixing your own colors.
The book seems to be more aim at general airbrush user instead of the scale model builder. I would have preferred more on thinning paints and setting pressures.
I do not recommend it.
The Testor's manual on plastic model building is more useful. It has a great chapter on troubleshooting and how to tell if the paint is too thick or thin, or if the pressure is too high or too low.
I think the Kalmbach Books' Painting and Finishing Scale Models is the best value on how to paint.
I'm still looking for a book that will help me become a better airbrusher.
