Sorry I guess not enough room on topic header, this is what I'm after: Vallejo - Model Air US Modern Desert Colors Airbrush Colors set.
Anyone know where I could see the instructions included in this paint set? I'd like to see what effects they are offering before spending the money on it.
Thanks for any help.

Oh and if other instruction sheets for other Vallejo sets are available somewhere, I'd like to see them too.

thanks Chris, I don't see the instructions there though. Wanted to know if there is a step by step kind of thing inside, or if I'm just on my own figuring out things for myself ;-)

For what itís worth I have multiple sets of these model air colors both aircraft and armor and none of them have any step by step instructions, just a color profile guide on the back of the box. Their weathering set do include a tutorial sheet showing how each color is used.

The second link is great, shows instructions on the back of the boxes, just blow the pic up 150% and it's all good!

glad it proved useful. I think the "information highway" is a miracle, but also sometimes deciphering & disseminating all the possible solutions takes more time & effort than going to the encyclopedia on the bookshelf.

But we have Wikipedia, a fountain of truth and accuracy!

well, I think the "buyer beware" comes into play. but if I read something with 30 or 40 supporting links & references, I tend to think it has some credence.
