This set offers the modeler five acrylic paints indispensable for painting the authentic colours of the Soviet Air Force from 1937 until the mid-1941.
These paints are historically accurate and use top quality components to exacting standards in their special formula.
What’s more, the colours take into account the effect of scale reduction. For example, a model aircraft reflects less light than an actual full-size aircraft. Therefore, this means the colour applied to the model must be of a lighter shade to look the same as the full-sized version. If you applied the exact same shade of paint to both the full-sized version and the model, then the model would appear darker as it reflects less light.
AK acrylic paints are water soluble and it is possible to apply them by brush and airbrush. Ready to use straight from the bottle; simply shake, and the paint is ready to go. Dilution is not necessary when airbrushing AK paints. Additionally, AK paints are free of odours unlike aggressive solvent based paints.
However, when painting camouflage or fine lines, add a few drops of the specially formulated thinner AK-712. Useful with all acrylic paints, AK-712 improves the performance of the paint.
