A good book, but much more on application than technique.,

This review is from: Airbrushing and Finishing Scale Models (Modelling Masterclass) (Spiral-bound)
I just finished reading this book and am still forming an opinion of it. I expected a bit more on the technique of using an air brush, meaning how to physically hold it and maneuver it. Instead, it shows various models, mostly aircraft, in various stages of being painted. While I did pick up a few tips applying masks and such, the actual information pertaining to what I was looking for was scant. Maybe I read more into the title than it suggested. The pictures are all superb and well sequenced. Instructions were fairly clear, but the author confuses air flow and air pressure in the compressor section as so many others also do. I likely still would have bought this book had I looked through it all beforehand. However, if the title was simply Finishing Scale Models it would have more accurately defined the contents.
