This video plays fine in Firefox ! So there is just something about the previous 2 videos that do not allow them to be played in Firefox....hmmm.



Great series on westhering steam. Can you please share a listing of all the paints, accessories and airbrush used so I can go out and get my own setup?



Hi Bill,  I'd suggest you go back and watch the airbrish 101, 102, 103, and 104 videos.  They explain all of this pretty thoroughly.  I use the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS for most painting, and for the fine detail on these projects I used the Iwata HP-C+.  Paints used were the Iwata Real Deal weathering set, and the Iwata Photo Gray set.  



I just subscribed to Trainmasters TV and finished watching this series. Just amazing work! Thanks for sharing your techniques with me. Now, I'm off to the spray booth to try them out on my own. Very impressed with Trainmasters!

Welcome aboard! I'm glad you enjoyed the series - and that you're enjoying TrainMasters. Be sure to tell your friends (grin!).

As a host, one of my measures of success in any segment is whether I learn something out of it. I'm pleased to say, I almost always do - even if our topic is something with which I'm already very familiar. For example, even though I've been airbrushing models for 30+ years, I've learned a lot from the airbrushing series.

Happy modeling...
