Among other things to see at this site, these how-to videos are just what I needed. I guess I'm a visual person and have to see things done to really, really get an idea of how to do something. I found this looking for preshading techniques. It gives an excellent video on preshading. I am doing a Revell-Monogram P-47D Razorback that has raised panel lines. I wanted to do some preshading since a wash probably wouldn't work well. I had an idea of how to do it, but the video on preshading helped explain it very well.

That is a good site and I watched the pre-shading video you mentioned.

That guy sure holds his airbrush funny though doesn't he? Big Smile [:D]
It looks like he is holding a butcher knife. Laugh [(-D]

Couple of questions for those of you that know: How long should you wait after preshading before applying the base coat? Also, it seemed in the preshading video he continued to use a fine tip. Do any of you always use a fine tip? Or do you change to a medium or greater tip for other work? Could any of you explain what your preferences are? Thanks.

Only, I hate windows media player. Being an Apple fanatic I had to say that, didn't I? Big Smile [:D]
