Robert Benedict (1963-2007) had been airbrushing for more than thirty years and he opperated Black Dog Custom Paint & Airbrush, a successful kustom paint shop in Utah that specializes in planes, helicopters and bikes. Mr Benedict was an instructor at the prestigious Airbrush Getaway workshops, and can be seen in two other DVDs: Biker Skull and Dynamic Lighting F/X. He was considered by Airbrush Action magazine and many of his peers to be among the best custom painters in the world. He will be sorely missed by his family, brethren, students, and industry.
