"I highly recommend this DVD to all you modelers who think you know all the tricks and to all those who wish they knew they tricks of producing an outstanding model."

"As the featured modeler in the Master Class Model Building Videos series, I have learned a thing or two about producing modeling videos in the last few years. So, it is with some degree of authority, that I can state that "Realistic Armor Finishing Techniques” is an excellent addition to the available library of how-to modeling DVDs...a tremendous product ... something here for almost any modeler of military hardware"
