Thanks for the compliments! I have painted enough stuff to qualify as a professional after all these years . I use iwata, aztek and badger airbrushes. I also use Binks and Ingersol-Rand full size automotive spray guns. The painting books I have seen over the years are very light on useful details, they usually have a very generic overview with a few useful tricks. I have found that just painting and screwing up was the best teacher of all. I also watched other painters work, I avoided asking them questions directly as most trade workers are very protective of thier work secrets and won't give them up freely in a conversation, but they don't seem to mind if you watch them work. If you have a specific question about painting I can probably answer it though.
