On Sunday 27th May I attended a workshop set up by Scale Modelling Now.

They run a series of workshops and the one I attended was the "All about airbrushing".

I`m no expert with an airbrush nor a total novice, but found this workshop a mine of useful skills and information.Cool

Two tutors Geoff and Adam took us through the pro`s and con`s of different equipment, paints,primers,masking etc,looking after your equipment and a whole lot of hands on work in how to get the best out of your airbrush.

The venue was excellent and the cost included drinks during breaks and a hot lunch and should you have to travel accomodation is available.

Thanks to Geoff and Adam for a great day that I can highly recommend.BigGrin

Keep an eye on the link below for the next workshops:

One additional bonus was a free kit to practice my new found skills on. See pic attached.

Sounds like a great day

With so much talent on modelspace maybe they should do some workshops Cool

Thanks for the review Derek. I really wanted to attend that one as well, but the dates didn't work for me Sad

I will just have too look out for the next one. Unless someone wants to do a joint one-on-one with the instructors. They have offered a 4 hour private tuition for £95, if anyone is interested?
