How To Use An Airbrush.
Your guide to painting, troubleshooting and enhanced realistic airbrush finishes.

This classic book by veteran modeler Bob Downie has been revised and updated to include the latest airbrushing techniques and finishes. The book's projects address a wide range of painting challenges and can be applied to model railroading and other hobbies. 

No other painting skill elevates the appearance of a model more than airbrushing, and nothing else gives the control and fine detail scale modelers work so hard to obtain. By following the detailed instructions and photos, you'll know how to: 

  • Select the proper airbrush, compressor and other equipment
  • Avoid or correct paint problems such as the "orange peel" effect, cracking, wrinkling and paint conflicts
  • Make and use masks for complex patterns
  • Paint camouflage for military vehicles
  • Apply custom paint schemes for stunning auto finishes


  • More than 200 photos
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Paint projects for every skill level
  • Tips gallery by 16 master modelers
