In partnership with The Airbrush Companywe've just announced some dates for my airbrushing and weathering courses, to be hosted in Lancing, West Sussex, UK in October 2020. 

October 20th: 'Airbrushing for Railway Modellers'
This is an introduction to the art of airbrushing, covering all the basics of how the tools work, how to operate them and how to mix/thin your paint correctly. In addition to the vital theoretical content, there will be plenty of practical work involved, with a range of top quality Iwata airbrushes and equipment for attendees to use.

October 21st: 'Weathering Techniques for Model Railway Rolling Stock'
Here, I'll share my methods for creating lifelike finishes on a range of passenger and freight vehicles, using an airbrush and manually-applied techniques. Anything from dusty cement hoppers, oily tankers to rusty mineral wagons will be covered, along with special strategies for steam- and diesel-era coaching stock. There will be a mix of demonstrations and ample opportunity for practical work, with a host of materials and tools available for use.

October 22nd: 'Weathering Techniques for Model Railway Locomotives'
Here, steam and diesel traction is considered, exploring a range of practical approaches. The creation of grimy, textured coatings and the realisation of a forlorn, end-of-steam appearance will be demonstrated, along with hints for capturing the distinctive polished-yet-grubby look of more cared-for steam engines. 

Other methods relevant to diesel and electric traction are also covered, including the creation of faded/worn liveries and leaking fuel/oil. Airbrush and hand-applied methods are considered, along with a wide variety of materials, plenty of which will be available for students to try for themselves.
