I've got this issue on my iPad and love it. Can't wait to get the rest of the series!

I just got my issue and wow! I thought I knew my dust, but the things you can learn from the way other top modelers get their results just blows me away. I pick up so many new things to try, new stuff I never thought of, new stuff I've never seen, it's like sitting at a workshop round robin with these guys. The weathering Magazine is this generation's version of the 1970's Shep Paine leaflets x 10. If you're not getting the Weathering Magazine, make friends with someone who is, because you're missing out big time.
I also now know that Akatsiya's left nipple is exactly 7.62mm wide. Invaluable information.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to have to check it out asap! I've always found creating dust to be a bit elusive and if this has the great tips you guys are talking about I think will save me hours of googling for random artists' tutorials online!
