Dual Diffusion Method

This is Tamiya's 1/48 scale MiG-15bis.
The model was built with an Aires cockpit set and Hi-Decal markings.
The model was painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics and weathered
exclusively with my Iwata Custom Micron B using my dual diffusion
post-shade/post-fade method. Chips were made with a silver pencil.
There seems to be quite a bit of confusion on the internet about my
"dual diffusion" method, especially from some guies who are not getting
the desired results from using the method. It's now time to reveal the
true secret of dual diffusion.
Two years ago I approached scientist Groiheimisch MacGinge from the
Canadian Army Fluid Dynamics Research Centre because I was looking for a
way to paint my models quickly, without having a system that would
become a troublemaker.
He suggested that I use a splitter hose and hook up 2 Iwata Microns
in a side by side "mistel" configuration. This way I am able to paint
both the post-fade and post-shade dual diffusions simultaneously.
This is a real time saver, the only thing you have to watch for is if
you reach around to adjust the pre-set handle on one Micron, that you do
indeed turn the correct knob.
