“What an amazing time to be a modeller! The old story about the lack of skills or information is no longer valid.
There is a huge number of publications show us how to, and now there is one more!
Abteilung 502 just released an amazing book showing how to use the oils paints.
Mastering Oils – Oil Painting Techniques on AFV’s by #JoaquínGarcíaGázquez.
And what a book!
Here we will learn A LOT about oils, since its composition and history and off course how to apply it in our models!
There is 128 pages filled with amazing pictures and very useful information. This is a high quality publication, it looks great, the paper and print are top quality as the contents. Well to be honest its one of those books that we are going to want two… one to keep and the other to consult… or is just me? 😀
Some concepts are explained here, like filters, lights etc
The book is divided in chapters and after a brief introduction we will find lots of very well explained techniques and tips, one thing i particularly likes its the tables showing us the oils to used dependent of the base colour of the kit, so we have the colours to use with the German Grey, DAK yellow, greens, camouflaged paints etc! It will help to understand how and why to use those colours, make it easy for the less experimented modellers.
In a very comprehensive way we will find an “how to” for almost everything that can be done with this paints, lights, shadows, outlines, filters, rust, dust, mud… everything is explained with a short but easy to understand way, of course the pictures will help a lot to understand.
So since the light to the heavy weathering all is explained to obtain a very realistic finish on our works.
Its possible to see some kits being painted and weathered since the beginning of the paint job.
There is a huge number of pictures on the gallery chapter. Being the oils paints one of the most “powerful tool” on the weathering process this is a must have book for all that are learning or want to evolve their technics.
Did i mention that it looks really good?
Congratulations to AB502 and the author Joaquin Garcia Gazquez
