- Item Number: AK2100
- Item Name: USAF TAC South East Asia (Sea) Scheme
This set of four acrylic paints is essential for painting models of aircraft used in the Southeast Asia theatre of operations in the 1960s-1970s. Specifically by the units subordinated to the USAF Tactical Air Command, including the A-37 Dragonfly, F-4 Phantom II, F-100 Super Sabre, F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Starfighter, F-105 Thunderchief, F-111 Aardvark, RF-101 Voodoo, and many more. The colours included in this set are also useful for painting models of aircraft used by the American allies, such as the F-5E Tiger II.
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.
