One of the most helpful books on modeling, it emphasizes painted finishes and related subjects. Over 300 photos and many line drawings show in a step by step way what the model should look like as finishing progresses. Topics include: inexpensive auto finishes that you can use, spraying, brushing, and compounding, installing a canopy, fillet, and wing tip. There is even a chapter on introductory Monokoting techniques and a compatibility chart which shows which finishing products will go over other products and which ones won't, saving a costly mistake.
