Hi Darren,

nice to see a review of the Airbrush Painting Techniques. Ive got to say though if I was reviewing the DVD I couldnt give it more than 50%. Firstly, I thought its production quality was very poor (even after taking into account the limited budget that would have been available for a product made for a niche market). Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, I felt that it ignores basic and fundamental techniques in favour of obscure ones which at best I feel should have only made the extras.

To some extent I guess you are right in so much as it was not aimed at a specific area of the hobby, and the obscure methods that are covered are of use to a limited number of people, I also accept the appeal of this DVD could have been much higher if more of the basics were covered. That is why I stated it is not really of use to the beginner and aimed more at the intermediate and well versed airbrush user. I donít agree that the quality of the production was an issue but that is just my opinion.
