  1. That’s actually known as priming when you color in the details and then go for a broad overspraying. That way, you won’t obiliterate your preshading by just wack it on the model with a heavy paint coat. You want your preshading to show through.

  2. hi im currently working on an f-105g thunderchief with raised panel lines will this technique still work ?

  3. would it be different if u dont use preshading, instead you do the shading on panel lines after washing?

  4. Get over yourself. You have been a complete jackass in every single comment you’ve posted in this man’s videos. If you don’t agree, or have a better suggestion, fine, state your piece, but don’t act like a grumpy little child because you don’t have your own videos.

    Second, who has talked about creating RUST on an aircraft? Be coherent for once. Preshading and most all aircraft weathering has NOTHING to do with rust, and no one has claimed it does.
    Get a clue.

  5. The whole preshading thing using an airbrush is a waste of time. 40 years ago watercolors used AFTER everything else was done did the trick nicely. Some modellers just have to compete with each other to see who can come up with the most complicated method of doing the simplest tasks. Like using oil color washes to imitate RUST on aircraft. Aircraft are Aluminum! They do NOT rust. Back then, the IPMS told us that weathering was a way of hiding our mistakes. Airplanes should be NEW looking.

  6. Use the airbrush however you like, the purpose of this video is the preshading process, not the way he holds his airbrush.

  7. Everything OK. But I find that his way of using the airbrush is inconvenient and impractical and accurate

  8. You have a very strange airbrush technique??? I am amazed that you get such good results the way you hold it. I do enjoy your tutorials though.Cheers!

  9. He is obviously a pre-jet era fanatic. Would like to see him do a F-16 or and F-14 Tomcat for a change.

  10. any1 has any idea how much would a good (not top tho) airbrush would cost? including the compressor

  11. depending on the airbrush yes but buying a compressor will save you money in the long run

  12. This may be a stupid question but can you use a air bursh with canned air to acheive close to the same effect?

  13. Thats the Testors Aztek airbrush. It comes with interchangeable nozzles which is how he can get the very fine lines. I have one and love it! Don’t understand that grip tho… 🙂
