Great Book, filled with information on the many varieties of paint, and application techniques. (Air Brush, paint brush, Decal Application, etc.) Certainly the book covers locomotives and rolling stock, but once you understand those principles, you can now move on to weathering buildings. automobiles (Rust on truck fenders, etc...). I will definitely keep this book on the top of my reference materials.

I found this book to be an exceptional introduction of the subject. Very clear and a great deal of useful information both on what paints/weathering materials and brushes as well as how to do it. Like all of Jeff Wilson's books, I highly recommend it.

Easy to follow with plenty of illustrations. Just what a how to book needs to be. I would have liked to have seen more information about painting and weathering structures. This was mostly about rolling stock. I need to keep looking for a book on weathering structures.

There are a lot of helpful "how to dos" in this book. A great value for the money. If you're just getting started into weathering or even painting, this will guide you through the basics. I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

Been waiting for this book!! Got my airbrush back out and went to town(thinkin' about pin striping my cat, NAH HAHAHAHA)Well done, thanks for the great information, AHHH at last. You could use this book to airbrush anything!!!I bought TWO copies, hid one in case my son puts the grab's on my book.

Jeff Wilson is one of my favorite authors one the hobby of HO trains. He keeps the subject interesting while teaching.

It has alot of weathering and painting tips. Great addition to my collection

Very good book. Can't wait to start building a layout so I can try some of the techniques.
