Having browsed through this title already I am happy with the book, very useful. What I miss from this (and from many others - so maybe I am the problem ) is the lack of attention paid to vehicles not too torn/aged/used/weathered.

What is also considered a plus for me is that this book is not a "product catalog" for one or two specific paint manufacturers, Adam uses all kinds of products and not just the trending ones.

All in all I am happy that today's modelers have plenty of resources (books, magazines, youtube) and materials to educate themselves, one just needs to find his own path... (+ budget).

Got both of these on the way. They look very promising as to the content.
