José Luis López has prepared this comprehensive guide to airbrushing. This title provides you with all the necessary techniques for using an airbrush to paint all kinds of models from figures and military vehicles to dioramas, aircraft and proper cleaning and maintenance.

This unrivalled guide is the companion you need to master a tool as necessary in current modelling as the airbrush.
The first part explains both technical aspects related to both the airbrush itself and the compressor, including the fundamental parameters of paint dilution rates and air pressure settings, as well as lighting and arrangement of the work table, and the equipment and procedures necessary to clean and maintain the airbrush.
The second part shows the endless application possibilities and painting techniques that can be applied with the airbrush, including pre-shading and base coats, camouflage schemes, highlights and shadows, stencils, varnish applications, transparent colours, weathering, as well as the use of the airbrush to paint dioramas and figures.
In addition, a final annex has been included where you will learn how to use this versatile tool in a field other than modelling: makeup, nail painting and body painting, which just may allow you to use your painting equipment for the joy of your loved ones.
