Hobby Town in Gainesville hosted a airbrush basics demonstration class on Saturday, February 12th put on by the Gator Modelers. This is the first in a series of tutorials in the various aspects of the hobby that the club hopes to offer over time at Hobby Town.
There were about fifteen interested modelers in the audience who participated in the two- hour session. Bill Winter and Jack Mugan, who covered the basics of airbrushing, presented this class. Answering questions about the equipment, paint materials and providing hands on opportunity to use the airbrush was the goal of the class.
Bill handled all the questions regarding acrylic painting, and Jack fielded the questions on lacquer and enamel. Ed Ingersoll and Bob Lundeen were also on hand for moral support. Many of the audience already had an airbrush, but were not confident enough to venture into the unknown. Jack, Bill and Eric felt the class was a success.
