    • Item Number: AK558
    • Item Name: Iraq and Afghanistan Set

    This set contains six paint colours specifically design to create the sand-coloured paint schemes as seen on vehicles recently deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Included are the grey-sand used by U.S. troops, the yellow-sand of the British Army, the Iraqi army sand colour and the three colours of the Bundeswehr (German) camouflage in desert theatres.

    The colours within each bottle are true to the actual colour, with a little modification for scale effect.

    It is part of AK Interactives ‘AFV Series’ paints. ‘AFV’ stands for Armoured Fighting Vehicle. 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 tank reflects less light than an actual full-size tank. 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.
