Airbrushing video tutorial for miniture and small scale models

For all those who work with miniature models, my hat comes off to you.  It takes a lot of patience and skill to work on such a small scale.  Two components that go into producing awesome small-scale models are good tools and knowing what you are doing.  I wanted to share with you a guy who definitely knows what he is doing when it comes to miniature models.  Check out Lester Bursley in action as he demonstrates how to paint a Doom Legion Space Marine.  Whether it’s a space marine, figurine, fishing lure or model airplane, Les showcases how to effectively use your airbrush tools and paint colors for an awesome outcome.

Airbrush 101 – A simple guide to understanding airbrush terminology, types of airbrushes, and their recommended uses.

Understanding the make up of an airbrush gun.

I have traveled across the globe attending conferences, trade shows and events which all involve the industries and hobbies that use airbrushes.   No matter what gathering I attend, I am asked the same important question, “What’s the best airbrush that I should use to _________” (fill in the blank with your application).  For this reason I have put together what I like to call “AIRBRUSH 101”. It’s a simple reminder and guide to understanding airbrush terminology, types of airbrushes, and their recommended uses.  I hope this airbrush guide will help and support whatever project or application you are working on.
