Default Paint DVD Preorder (Would you pay $40....)

Edit:

Ok, so it seems like this is a good idea, I have spoken with a fellow who will tape and produce the DVD, what we need now is preorders to give us an idea of how many will need to be produced. (I don't want to get 1000 copies made if only 100 will sell etc)
The cost will be somewhere around $40 Canadian (currently about $33USD). I do NOT want money at this point. All I want is an email stating that you do want a copy. Once the video is shot and edited, ready for production, I will ask for money but not before then.
If you want a copy, please send an email to:
[email protected] and you will be put on a list.
Just to follow up, the first DVD will cover:


1. Safety - how to protect yourself and those around you while spraying
2. Stands for holding the model and all associated parts
3. Surface prep of the model
4. Adding raised panel detail (in the case of the waco I need to make a couple of panels)
5. Spray guns, pressures, paint consistency
6. Applying primer
7. Prep of primer for paint
8. Color spraying
9. Masking for markings
10. Clear coat application
11. Creating realism, oil drips, leaks etc
12. Proper cleaning of paint equipment before putting it away
13. Cover materials needed (sandpaper, tapes, masking papers and films etc, should have been point 3 but I forgot it)

It will also cover some trouble shooting and how to fix a mistake in your paint job.
Thanks guys!!!
Jeremy










For a DVD on how to paint that pertained specifically to RC airplanes? That covered everything from equipment setup, paint mixing, prepping the model, applying paints, right through to markings and finishing?
Been giving some thought to doing something like this, but only if there is enough interest

Obviously you can charge whatever makes sense, when I was in the mode of buying information video's, I tended to stay in the $25.00 range as to making the decision to purchase. Seems like $25.00 was a no brainer, and more than that was "Am I really going to use this or is it going to sit on the shelf". Good luck, sounds like a neat insight into what you do.

Hi Sean,
Sadly I don't have any video making equipment myself, so I'd have to get somebody to do it, that means having to pay somebody to do the hard work. I know I've paid a lot more for instructional video's, and some, a bit less, that seemed like a good middle of the road number, but that's why I'm asking, gotta be worth doing

Sounds like a good idea to me, but it may depend on how 'generic' the information can be.

e.g. if you gave instructions on using paint brand A, gun & airbrush brand B and markings of brand C, but I typically use brands X, Y and Z instead of A, B, C ... how well would the info translate from your demo setup to mine ?

Hi Gordon,
The basics of equipment setup and paint setup carry over pretty easily from one model to the next. Paints can be a little trickier, but from what I've seen, most guys painting jets are using Base/Clear paints anyway. As for surface prep, masking etc, all of that is the same, so it would be a fairly generic type video, techniques would be focused on the most with basic set up and paint info.

You can also count me in... A little on the higher side for what I would normally be willing to pay, but if the info is as usefull as it sounds like it would be I'm very interested.
I know I have seen $50+ for instructional DVD's on laying up Fiberglass and Composite material etc.

I would purchase one Jeremy.

The tutorial you did a few years ago certainly helped me.

I would probably go more for the $25 range like Sean. I have seen some of the how to's like the Dave Platt series and to me they are way overpriced. I understand there is overhead and what not but usually there is a few good techniques in the series and to pay a lot of money for info that you may already know about is rough. I would be interested in mostly the gun setup info and techniques such as that which you use Jeremy and perhaps some other industry secrets but subject content would be critical. Would you cover scale painting as well as your typical sport and high gloss finishes? If so then I might be persuaded to spend the extra $15.

DONT BE CHEAP!!!! The fact that he would take the time to make it at all is worth it. Is he going to make any money off it-not hardly. $40.00-whats that about 1/3rd the price of a single servo??? Five gallons of Kero at Home Depot? A few shots of Patrone?? One of those little Luxeon emmiters and 36 inches of wire?
All that is gone in a flash
DVD here for ever
Lets not be a chass
Lets pay the man. Scotty

Jeremy the first Liberty is almost ready. You got a lot of schemes for that one though.

Some surface preparation for the non flats rivets like the ones on the aft part of da Hawk will be helpfull also. Sanding all those rivets to a prefect smooth could be a tedious job. Specially for polishing.[sm=bananahead.gif]

Default RE: Would you pay $40....

hell ya! I say $40 is a steal to learn from Jeremy. I am in for sure.

I am doing my first paint job ...camo mig 21. very interested in learning more. I am hell bent on doing it myself and getting a perfect finish...I know its a paradox

Here are some of the things I am really interested in
1. Surface prep...when and how to use primers - Seams, pinholes, revets...
2. Different kind of paints and mixing. There is just so much lingo out there that I get really confused. I am going to paint this one using Model Master enamels as the range of colors for a russian aricraft is great and I can wipe the damn thing off when I goof up. rather than sanding.
3. detailing using airbrush...may be you can release another DVD for advanced skills and high detail work...I would be open to buying a series of Dvds that go from basic to more advance skills/techniques. Planning on a firebird in flitemetal and snazzy color scheme on top of it.
4. repairs. Dont think you had this covered in your original posts.

let me know where to send the MO and egaer to get my hands on the DVD.
