The Weathering Magazine #22 – Basics
From the author’s website:
The Weathering Magazine is the only magazine devoted entirely to the painting and weathering techniques of scale models and figures. In this issue, we will focus on all basic techniques, tools, and materials used for modeling. We present you with a selection of articles focused on all the essential information every modeler should know and review. Although this edition is about basics, more experienced hobbyists will find answers to numerous questions, tips, and advice on how to make modeling more fun while improving our skills. We begin with the simplest assembly and decaling techniques, through articles describing the use of an airbrush, choosing the right brushes for specific tasks, determining the correct order of application, use of the primers, varnishes, metallics, and ending with more complex descriptions of painting and finishing methods.
And of course, much more… As always, this magazine explains with detailed “step by step” articles, how to perform every technique as illustrated through high quality photos and concise descriptions by some of the finest modelers in the world. Printed on high quality glossy paper, this useful issue of TWM is a collectible resource packed with useful techniques and inspiration.
The magazine is 78 pages, mostly content with a few adverts. The photographs and captions are excellent and show you clearly what you need to see. The articles cover all you might need to know to finish your builds with quality techniques for the filling, decaling, painting and weathering.
Individual issues and subscriptions are available from the Ammo website.
